See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Sixty-two Jewish refugees from the Burgenland province of Austria, who have been living on a tugboat in the Danube for 113 days because no country would admit them, were finally permitted to set foot in Czechoslovakia today following receipt of certificates entitling them to immigrate to Palestine.

Brno police today extended residence permits of refugees to Aug. 15 when a refugee camp at Svatoboritz is expected to be opened.
