Poland Holds Deportees from Germany at Frontier

Download PDF for this date

Great disappointment was expressed in Jewish circles today over the Polish Government’s refusal to permit 1,000 Polish Jewish deportees from Germany, mainly women, children, aged and sick, to leave the frontier town of Szyboszyn, where 5,000 have been interned. Despite preparations made by Jewish organizations to transport the refugees to the interior and house them, the government-declared that no decision would be taken until the decision of the Polish-German conference in Berlin would be known.
