Greek Jews of Military Age May Go to Israel if They Pledge Never to Return to Greece

Download PDF for this date

Greek Jews of military age may immigrate to Israel on condition that they renounce their nationality, declare that they will never return to Greece and “take with them all members of their family,” a Greek Government order concerning the emigration of Jews from this country said today.

The last part of the order–pertaining to the movement of families–is considered to be vague and it is expected that elucidation of the clause will be requested. The government order covers Jews now serving in the Greek Army.
