‘White Lady’ Slaps Warsaw Jews with Iron Glove in New Nazi Sadism

The Nazis were reported today to have developed a new wrinkle in anti-Jewish sadism in Warsaw, taking the form of a "White Lady" who roams the streets striking Jews in the face with a steel-lined glove.

The "White Lady," so named because she is clad in white from head to foot, is followed on her trips through the streets of the former Polish capital by a group of Nazis. Jews who dare to resist her assaults are mercilessly beaten by the Nazi escort. The Germans reportedly are hiring more such "White Ladies" from the Warsaw underworld and it is believed that women have even been brought from Germany for this purpose.
