Download PDF for this date

The Russians, it was learned here today, have taken all Yiddish printing plants and their staffs from Wilno to the Soviet. As a result, the Wilno district has no Jewish paper with the exception of a bulletin which is being brought in from Minsk, Russia.

Shipments of food from Kaunas, it was learned, were barred by the Russians.
