Download PDF for this date

The Associated Press reported from Prague today that a transport of about 600 Jews has been sent to Nazi-held areas of Poland for compulsory labor. The dispatch said that most of the Jews had been unemployed but some had been taken from jobs in factories.

An A.P. dispatch from Lodz quoted the Deutsche Lodzer Zeitung as declaring that Jews in Poland have been forbidden by the German Occupation Administration to trade or deal in textiles, leather or leather goods. The newspaper said that Jewish-owned textile factories were permitted to sell only to non-Jewish customers.
