Shipments of Refugee Jews from Austria to Germany Halted Until After High Holy Days

Shipments of displaced Jews from camps in Austria to the American zone of Germany were halted yesterday until after the High Holidays, it was learned here today.

Originally it was planned to transfer 10,000 refugees between September 21 and 31. Instead two daily shipments of 1,000 men, women and children left Saturday and Sunday and a third will be dispatched on September 28. The remaining 7,000 will be held until sometime after Yom Kippur, when the daily transports will be resumed.

A week-long exhibition of products made in ORT schools in camps in the U.S. zone of Germany opened today in Landsberg. The fair will feature the handwork manufactured in 12 central ORT vocational schools and several of the smaller training centers.
