July 24st 1938 British Restrict Jewish Immigration to Palestine

Sir Sidney Waterlow the British Ambassador  in Athens wrote:

Every British ambassador in Europe received instructions on July 21, 1938, that he was to press his respective government not to allow Jews to pass through their ports or towns on their way to Palestine. “The Greek government have, at my insistence, now instructed their missions abroad, including the Greek missions in Vienna and Warsaw, not to issue transit visas through Greece to Jews whatever the destination stated on their application.”
