Polish Jews Reaching U.S. Zone in Germany Will Be Cared For, State Department Says

The State Department today told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that Jewish refugees from Poland, once in the American zone in Germany, would be cared for and will not be expelled.

A spokesman for the State Department declared that while the refugees arriving from Poland are obviously creating an additional burden for the U.S. occupying forces, and were therefore not being invited, the official policy is nevertheless to keep them were they have arrived, and not return them against their will to the places from which they had fled.
