BISHOP WITTLER of Osna brueck offered Christmas Mass for some 900 Catholic refugees in an old garage at a camp near Bremen.

The refugees have been using the garage as a theatre where films given by various organisations are shown on an improvised screen. The same building is also used as a chapel.

When the announcement was made that Bishop Wittier would spend Christmas with them, the in

habitants of the camp hastily made Christmas decorations out of what

ever they could find. The Bishop told the congregation that their crib was one of the most beautiful

he had even seen. He congratulated them on their ability to make so much from so little.

The camp is the only home of about 1,200 refugees, most of them from East Germany.
