Download PDF for this date

Rabbi Philip Bernstein, Jewish advisor to the American occupation forces in Germany, on his return here today from Italy where he secured an audience with Pope Pius XII, announced that he will leave Sunday for Washington to discuss with the War Department the plan for the admission of 25,000 Jewish refugees to Italy, in which the U.S. Government is interested.

Rabbi Bernstein said the Pope displayed great sympathy for the Jews when they discussed current anti-Semitic manifestations in Poland and the problems of displaced Jews.
