Gestapo Orders Sending Jews to Camps Unearthed; May Aid in Tracing Missing Jews

Orders issued by the Gestapo in Frankfurt sending some 15,000 Jews to concentration camps have been unearthed here by American investigators, it was announced today. The old travel orders were discovered in the cellar of the criminal police holding.

It is expected that the papers will eventually be turned over to Jewish organizations to facilitate the tracing of many Jews whose whereabouts are still unknown. However, they must first be cleared by U.S. military authorities who are now examining them.
