Download PDF for this date

Lithuanian and German representatives today reached agreement on the case of 1,000 Jews from the Suwalki district of Nazi Poland who were expelled into the Lithuanian frontier area. Part of them will be admitted to Lithuania and the rest must return to Poland. Jewish organizations have sent food and clothing to the Jews in the “no-man’s land.”
