Ceremony Marks Liquidation of Last Camp for Displaced Jews in British Zone of Germany

The liquidation of the last camp for displaces Jews in the British zone of Germany was marked here by a special ceremony tonight attended by representatives of central Jewish organizations, including the Joint Distribution Committee and the World Jewish Congress.

Lord Henderson, British Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, in a message to the gathering expressed regret that he could not attend the ceremony. “I should not wish the departure of the last Jewish DP’s from the British zone to take place without wishing them Godspeed,” he said in his message. “May the fine human qualities which have sustained them in the past years of adversity reap their reward in their new homelands.”
