Download PDF for this date

Authorities in charge of the three concentration camps that were ordered yesterday established in the vicinity of Brest-Litovsk, Losice and Ilkusz, have been given strict instructions to enforce a severe regime upon all prisoners, it was announced today by Premier Kozlowski at a conference with the press.

“All disturbers of the peace,” the Premier declared, “have been ordered harshly dealt with irrespective of their confession, nationality or party.”

In the meantime the flood of arrests precipitated by the assassination of Col. Bronislaw Pieracki, Minister of the Interior, who was slain last week supposedly by members of the Nara party, continued with unabated vigor today.

Among the newly-arrested persons today were many members of the National Democrats (Endeks) in this city and in Lodz. The prisoners included a number of party leaders and several Endek journalists and lawyers.
