Group of Jews Who Left Poland Illegally Arrive in Austria; Predict More Will Flee

A group of 20 Polish Jewish refugees have arrived at Kittsee, Austria, on the frontier near Bratislava, the Socialist newspaper Arbeiter Zeitung, reported here today.

The newspaper said that the Polish Jews were put across the border by Czech authorities. They are reported to have fled Poland because of renewed “Jew-baiting” there. The refugees are quoted as saying that more Jews can be expected to flee Poland. The Arbeiter Zeitung says that apparently neither the Polish nor Czech authorities attempted to place any obstacle in the path of the Jews.
