Paris, Jan. 21 (JTA) – The French Government today furnished the Jewish Telegraphic Agency with a list of 156 of the most prominent of the Jewish and non-Jewish refugees from Germany released from isolation camps, where they were interned as technical "enemy aliens" after the outbreak of the war.
Gradual release of such men is continuing. According to Minister of Interior Albert Sarraut, about half of the 15,000 originally interned have been freed. Many of them secured their release after agreeing to serve in the Foreign Legion.
Official quarters explain that the interning of the refugees was necessary, despite a desire to avoid any unnecessary inconvenience to refugees, because some of those calling themselves refugees might have been disguised German agents, and also because the presence of refugees on the streets after general mobilization might have exposed the aliens to the animosity of the public.
The official list provided by the Government includes the names of prominent writers, editors, scientists and Socialist leaders who have come to France from Germany since Hitler's accession to power. It includes such names as Lion Feucht-wanger, Conrad Helden and Karl Bondy.
