Jews in Rumania Succeed in Fleeing Country, German Radio Complains

Download PDF for this date

The German radio asserted today that Jews in Rumania are now securing forged passports of neutral countries and are succeeding in escaping from the country.

The broadcaster quoted Rumanian newspapers as stating that the Rumanian authorities are taking measures to discover the organization which is charged in producing the passports for the Jews. So far no trace of the organization has been found.

At the same time, it was learned here that a group in Istanbul is negotiating with Turkish ship owners to send a ship to a Rumanian port to transport from Rumania to Turkey a number of Jews for whom Palestine visas can be secured. The Turkish Government is willing to grant visas to any Jew in the Balkan countries for whom the British Consulate in Istanbul will hold a Palestine visa in reserve to be issued as soon as the refugee reaches Turkey.
