30,000 Berlin Jews Slated to Be Shipped to Lublin Today, Danish Paper Reports

The Berlin correspondent of the Danish newspaper Politiken reported today that the Nazi authorities will tomorrow begin the deportation of 30,000 Berlin Jews to the projected Jewish “reservation” centering around Lublin in Nazi Poland. The correspondent said that 22,000 Jews have allegedly already been deported to the Lublin area.

The deportees reportedly will be permitted to take with them only the suit they are wearing, some underwear and food for three days. The remainder of their property, the dispatch said, will be auctioned off.

Once in Lublin, the correspondent reported, the deportees will be placed in barracks and, with the exception of physicians among them will be used in forced labor projects.
