200 Jewish Refugees Enter Italy Daily Seeking Passage to Palestine

About 200 Jewish refugees continue to enter Italy daily seeking passage to Palestine. They are being placed in UNRRA camps in northern Italy.

A committee of the Central Committee of Displaced Persons, representing about 25,000 Jewish DP’s in Italy, has submitted a memorandum to the Italian Ministry of the Interior protesting against the “libelous campaign” launched by a section of the Italian press against the DP’s, charging that they are “terrorists” and responsible for the recent bombing of the British embassy in Rome.
