Eighty six Jewish refugees from Germany, who found on their arrival in Trinidad that they were barred because of a new prohibition on admission of refugees, have been granted a 30-day stay in Caracas, Venezuela, after being also barred from Honduras, it was reported by HIAS here today. The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, which obtained for them the temporary asylum in Caracas by appealing to the President of Venezuela, is now seeking to find a permanent haven for them in a Central or South American country.
