Download PDF for this date

Premier Willem A. Schermerhorn has agreed to allow a limited number of displaced Jews from Germany to enter Holland for agricultural training before emigrating to Palestine, the Hachahara organization here announced following a conference with the Premier. The Dp’s will be housed in a training center at Wieringen, which will be partly financed by the Joint Distribution Committee.

Arnold Meyer, a fascist leader and prominent anti-Semite, who escaped from prison shortly after the liberation of the Netherlands, has been re-arrested. For many months the Government refused to take action against Meyer, although his hiding place was known. Public pressure finally forced the authorities to take him into custody.
