Announcement issued by Captain Gustav Schroeder to the passengers of the MS St. Louis informing them of the Cuban government's decision to force the ship to leave Havana.

The German text reads: "The Cuban government is forcing us to leave the port. They have permitted us to stay here until daybreak and the departure is set for 10:00 Friday morning. The departure has not brought about any disruption in the negotiations. Only the situation brought about by the departure of the ship is a precondition for the intervention of Mr. Berenson and his co-workers. The ship administration will remain in further contact with all Jewish organizations and all other governmental offices, and will, with all available means, seek a remedy, so that a disembarkation outside Germany will occur, and we will stay for the time being near the American coast."
