There are 150,000 fewer Jews in Germany today than there were when Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, the C.-V. Zeitung, organ of the Central Union of Jews in Germany, reported today.

The paper estimates the present Jewish population at 400,000 against 550,000 prior to the advent of the Nazi regime.
