3 Polish ‘reservations’ Planned

Download PDF for this date

French newspapers said today it had been announced in Berlin that three “reservations” for Poles would be set up in the districts of Cracow, Warsaw and Radom, in addition to the Jewish “reservation” in the Lublin area. Chancellor Hitler has adopted the four-reservation plan instead of his previous program of establishing a nominally independent Polish State, it was said.

Poles will not be allowed to reside in the Jewish territory and neither Poles nor Jews will be permitted to move from their “reservations” to any other part of German-held land, the Berlin announcement was quoted as stating. Whether Jews would be forced to move to Lublin from the projected Polish “reservations” was not specified.
