British Military Police Raid Jewish Fishing School in Germany; Arrest 26

Twenty-six persons, including seven women, were arrested yesterday when British military police raided a Jewish fishery training school at Blakensee, near here, on charges that it was an embarkation center for Jews seeking to enter Palestine.

The police say that they discovered chests containing money and food in the school’s headquarters and a powerful steam launch and three sea-going motorboats moored at its docks.

All those arrested were displaced persons, seven of whom were ordered moved to an UNRRA camp at Neustadt last month, but had refused to go.
