Jews Leaving Germany in Masses

October 2, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Large numbers of Jews, especialy those from Russia, are departing in masses for other parts of Europe on account of the steadily growing pressure of anti-Semitism and the difficult economic conditions induced by the fall of the mark.

The majority are heading for Austria and France where living is now cheaper than in Berlin.

A considerable number, too, are seeking to return to Russia, believing that the new economic policy of the Soviet will make it possible for them to earn a living there. Dr. Fridjhof Nansen is negotiating with the Soviet authorities in an effort to facilitate the return of these.

The exodous of Jews from Germany is particularly large in Bavaria on account of the intense anti-Semitism there.
