All Kattowice Jews Deported

Download PDF for this date

The Nazi authorities, it was learned here today, have expelled all male Jews from the Polish city of Kattowice, giving them only several hours to make their preparations and permitting them to carry food sufficient only for three days. Although women and children were permitted to remain, property of the deported Jews was confiscated and their families were believed to be facing starvation. The Jews reportedly were ordered to the Lublin area.
