Download PDF for this date

Six hundred parcels containing the ashes of murdered Jews have been received by families in Lodz, Nazi Poland, it was reported from Copenhagen today by the Polish Press Bureau.

The dispatch said that the Nazi authorities in Lodz have arrested 12,000 Jews, including all rabbis, all members of the executive board of the Jewish Communal Organization and all the more important manufacturers.

Many of the arrested Jews, the bureau reported, were sent to the dread Nazi concentration camps in Dachau, Buchenwald and Sachsenhausen, whence the parcels of ashes were delivered to Lodz.
