Last Camp of Displaced Jews Will Be Closed in British Zone of Germany; Dp Problem to End

The closing of the last camp for displaced Jews in the British zone of Germany and the ending of the Jewish DP problem in the zone will take place within the next few months under an agreement arrived at between Joseph Rosensaft, chairman of the Central Committee of Liberated Jews, and the British occupation authorities, it was reported here today.

Many of the remaining Jews will emigrate during that period. The “hard-core cases,” numbering between 60 and 100, will be transferred to a hospital in the American zone where they will be cared for by the Joint Distribution Committee. In the American zone, it is estimated, there are still between 12,000 and 15,000 displaced Jews.
