The American Broadcasting Company today reported from Berlin that 500 of the 1,600 Polish Jews who fled this week from the Russian sector of Berlin, when they were ordered to prepare for evacuation to a camp at Prenzlau, were found last night living in an old pavilion in the American section of the city.

“This morning they sent a delegation to the American commander asking for food, beds and blankets, the ABC correspondent said. “Jewish spokesmen say they have no intention whatever of going to any camp in the Russian zone. The majority say they’re going to Palestine, while a minority declare they are going to the United States.”
