Belgrade dispatches reported today that additional “Peoples’ Court” have had to be set up by the Nazi authorities in Nazi-occupied Poland to deal with a pronounced increase in acts of sabotage. Seventeen Poles were reportedly sentenced to death at Litzmanstadt (Lodz). New courts have been established at Litzmanstadt, Warsaw, Hohensalze and Bromberg (Bydgoszcz).
