Download PDF for this date

The future of the remaining Jewish displaced persons in the British zone of Germany, including the so-called “hard core” cases, was discussed today in Bergen Belsen by representatives of the Jewish Central Committee, the World Jewish Congress, the British Foreign Office, the British War Office and British occupation authorities.

British Foreign Undersecretary Lord Henderson and Undersecretary of War Richard Stewart made a special trip to Germany to investigate the position of the Jewish DP’s. Following the meeting, at which Joint Distribution Committee representative J. de Gorta was present, Lord Henderson and Undersecretary Stewart and members of their staff visited the mass graves at the Bergen Belsen camp.
