Austrian Jews who had lived for as long as thirty years in Munich on arrival here following their expulsion from Bavaria made the following statement to the J. T. A. :

"Our homes were invaded at night, all belongings confiscated, and we were forced over the frontier. Operators of large factories were expelled and their property requisitioned. The equipment of their factories, has in many cases been seized, although the authorities admitted the owners had a right to retain them.

"The Kahr regime encourages the Hakenkreuzler, who go about in public singing ‘The alien Jews must get out, our reckong then with the local Jews’".

Thus far 300 Jews have arrived from Munich. The majority of these refugees have been left with no means whatever, all their property having been confiscated.
