Liquidation of All Jewish Dp Camps in Northern Italy Completed; Few Jews Left in Area


The liquidation of all Jewish DP camps in northern Italy was completed this week when the last contingent of Israel-bound immigrants left over the week-end, it was announced here. The only displaced Jews still to be found in northern Italy are living in Milan, in a J.D.C. sanitarium at Mirano and in kibbutzim.

Members of the Rivoli DP camp–numbering some 500 persons–left as a unit for Israel. They hope to establish a settlement in the Jewish state where they will be able to live together. Nearly all of them are trained agricultural workers and, unlike members of other DP camps, very few of them have children.
