500 Jewish Children from Germany to Be Admitted to France; 25 Arrive in England by Plane

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The French Government today granted permission for the entry into France of 500 Jewish children and fifty Jewish orthodox teachers who are at present in camps for displaced persons in Germany.

Mathieu Muller, president of the Agudas Israel Organization in France, and Isaac Lowin, special representative of the Vaad Haatzalah, Jewish orthodox relief group in the United States, were notified of the Government’s decision. The children will be housed in five centers, which the Vaad Haatzalah is now establishing in France, pending their eventual departure for Palestine. A delegation of the Vaad Haatzalah is leaving tomorrow for Germany to organize transportation of the children.

(Twenty-five Jewish orphans from the Bergen-Belsen camp arrived in England today by plane, the London correspondent of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reports. The children will be given immediate medical treatment and will be cared for during the winter until they emigrate to Palestine or other countries.)
