Download PDF for this date

Two transports carrying 350 Jews from Rumania arrived by train here today while 500 Rumanian Jewish emigrants left Vienna today on a special train for Naples to embark there on a ship for Israel. Another group of 80 emigrants left here today for Israel on an El Al plane.

The emigrants which reached here today reported that some of them were taken off the train by the Rumanian border authorities at the Rumanian-Hungarian frontier, but were permitted to continue their trip eight hours later.

(In Jerusalem, the Jewish Agency announced today that sites have been selected on which 31, 000 dwelling units will be built for the housing of new immigrants arriving and expected to come. The sites of the new homes will be on sandy areas only, the announcement said. Cultivable land is being conserved for agricultural development. )
