Nazi Paper Sees Warsaw Census Prelude to Expulsion

Download PDF for this date

A census of Jews in Warsaw was taken on Oct. 29 with a view toward their expulsion from any future Polish State, according to the Essener National Zeitung, organ of Field Marshal Hermann Goering.

The Nazi newspaper, which was quoted today by the Daily Telegraph declared that “when the results of the census are known, the days of the Warsaw ghetto, which has been a stumbling block to Germans and Poles alike, will then be numbered.” The Polish Jews the newspaper added, were Germany’s “declared enemies and will be treated as such.”

(A JTA Wilno dispatch yesterday said the census was preliminary to an order compelling all Jews to leave mixed quarters of Warsaw and to concentrate in Nalewki and adjacent streets, one of the city’s Jewish quarters. It was also reported that the census would be taken as a basis for imposing heavy collective “fines” upon the Jews.)
