Reich Official Confers on Refugee Project in London

Download PDF for this date

Financial aspects of the projected international foundation to facilitate emigration from Germany are being developed in the course of intensive discussions here, but they have not yet crystallized in definite form.

Dr. Helmuth Wohlthat, of the Reich Economics Ministry, was in London last week and discussed the question of Jewish emigration with officials of the Intergovernmental Refugee Committee, continuing talks initiated in Berlin with Robert Pell, vice-director of the committee. The German official met Lord Winterton, chairman of the committee, Sir Herbert Emerson, committee director and League High Commissioner for Refugees, as well as representatives of an American group now here to negotiate in connection with the foundation.

The conversations between Dr. Wohlthat and the committee officials are understood not to have led to immediate, definite results.
