Murdered Jews Ordered Buried in Non-jewish Cemeteries in Future

Jewish cemetery officials of Berlin have received strict orders from the Nazi government not to supply any information in regard to the number of Jewish burials, it is learned here. Murders, suicides, and deaths of people who “suddenly disappeared” and whose bodies were later found, are not to be revealed through cemetery statistics.

A new regulation provides that bodies of Jews whose deaths resulted from any of the above unnatural causes are not to be brought to Jewish cemeteries for burial. In the future they are to be interred in non-Jewish burial grounds.
