Czech Jewish Refugees Confirm Arrest of President of Czechoslovak Zionist Organization

The reported arrest of Oskar Krasnansky, president of the Zionist Organization of Czechoslovakia, in Prague last month was confirmed today by Jewish refugees arriving in Linz from Czechoslovakia.

U.S. military headquarters in Salzburg announced last night that a transport of 315 Israel-bound displaced Jews has left for Marseilles where they will board a vessel that will take them on the last leg of their journey to the Jewish state.
