Download PDF for this date

Three hundred and ninety-nine displaced Jews from Germany landed in Norway last week, the Royal Norwegian Information Services announced here during the week-end.

This is the first group of Jewish refugees to arrive in a body since the war. Several hundred more are expected from Poland. During their first few months in the country, the Jews will undergo instruction in the Norwegian language and customs. Seven of their ten Norwegian instructors are former inmates of Nazi concentration camps.
