U.S. Military Govt. Charged by Chaplain with Poor Treatment of Displaced Jews

Download PDF for this date

The blame for the continuing “gruesome and desperate plight” of Jewish displaced persons in the American zone in Germany was today placed directly on the American Military Government authorities by Capt. Robert S. Marcus, Army chaplain recently returned from Europe. He also said that large numbers of Jews daily leave the British for the American zone. The “shabby treatment” of Jewish refugees by the British he attributed to British attempts “to get them disgusted, change their minds about going to Palestine and agree to return to Poland.”
