Sweden Urges U. N. to Probe into Egypt’s Deportation of Jews

Download PDF for this date

Sweden has requested that Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold make an effort to find out what Egypt is doing in regard to deportations and persecutions of Jews, Osten Unden, Foreign Minister of Sweden, declared here.

“There have been reports these last few days of deportations of Jews from Egypt. I would like to express my sincere hope that these reports are unfounded or exaggerated. No doubt the Secretary General will feel entitled to establish the facts in this matter. It would be a terrible blow to our organization and to the principles it stands for if we, once more, would have to register anti-Semitic feelings and facts, adding to the tragedy we are witnessing in the Middle East these days.”
