Jewish Savings Banks Closed

All Jewish savings banks in the Government-General area of Poland have been closed by the Nazi authorities supervising banking enterprises, the Krakauer Zeitung, Nazi newspaper in Poland, reports. It is expected that a restricted number of Jewish savings banks will be permitted to resume activity, the paper says.

Meanwhile, opening in Rzeszow of the first Jewish school under the enforced ghetto educational system is reported in the Nazi-dominated Jewish organ, Gazeta zydowska, which states 800 pupils have been enrolled. The paper quotes Dr. Kleinmann, president of the Cracow Jewish community, as expressing belief that the experiment will be successful.
