Download PDF for this date

The Soviet radio broadcast an announcement today that more than 500 industrial enterprises in Bialystok, in Soviet-occupied Poland, have been nationalized and turned over to Government trusts. Most of these enterprises are believed to have been Jewish. The firms operate under commissars sent from Moscow but are manned by local engineers and technicians, the broadcast said.
