German Police Raid Munich Synagogue; Arrest 67 Jewish Refugees

A large number of German police early this morning raided the main Orthodox synagogue here and arrested 67 sleeping Jewish DP’s who had within the past ten weeks returned from Israel to Germany without valid entry visas.

Fourteen of the arrested Jewish refugees were sentenced immediately by a local court to two weeks’ imprisonment each for illegal entry. The others will come up for trial tomorrow and Friday. The arrested Jews are all men. No women and children were taken into custody.
