German Jewish Refugees Not Allowed to Leave Germany

Download PDF for this date

Jewish Polish citizens were left untouched by the Nazi boycott at Breslau, following in#ervention of the Polish Consulate here.

At Essen, which has become notorious for the intensity of its conduct of the anti-Jewish campaign, forty Polish Jews have been arrested.

Although a large influx of German refugees had been expected as a result of the general anti-Jewish boycott, this has not materialized, mainly owing to the fact that the international trains going out of Germany have been systematically searched by the authorities for German Jews leaving the country. In many cases, these have been turned back. One such case occurred at the German Polish frontier on the way to Warsaw, when fifteen German Jews, arriving with Polish visas, were not permitted to proceed to Poland. Only Polish Jews were allowed to pass on.
