Influx of Polish Jews into U.S. Zone in Germany Continues, War Department Reports

Polish Jews are continuing to enter the American zone of Germany in hope of expediting their removal to Palestine, and they constitute the majority of those entering the zone, according to the Civil Affairs Division of the War Department.

Declaring displaced persons primarily responsible for disturbances in the American zone, army officials have listed several solutions. These include closing the borders against further entrance of refugees, closing the displaced persons camps, provision of means for resettlement of the non-repatriables and reduction of rations in the camps to that of the German population, with the displaced persons ordered to work for their keep.
