News Brief

The diplomatic correspondent of the Manchester Guardian estimated today that 200 Jews have been executed and that between 35,000 and 40,000 Jews have been arrested during the current anti-Semitic wave in Germany. The 200 executions took place in the Buchenwald concentration camp alone, he said, declaring that he had received confirmation of reports that 70 Jews were killed there the night of Nov. 8, before Ernst vom Rath died of wounds inflicted by a young Polish Jew. The Manchester Guardian writer added that it has become increasingly clear that the pogrom was prepared long before it occurred.
