East Germany will offer a permanent home to Soviet Jewish emigrants, the East Berlin government announced. The decision resolves the case of about 500 Soviet Jews who have been living in a German army barracks after fleeing a resurgence of anti-Semitism in the Soviet Union. The coalition Cabinet resolved to grant residence and employment rights to Soviet Jewish emigrants, Almuth Berger, East Germany's immigration commissioner, told a news conference.

Witnesses at another crossing in Austria said they saw Hungarian border guards turn back nearly 20 East German cars.
