Nazis Curb Use of Gas, Electricity by Jews in Warsaw Ghetto

Following establishment of the ghetto in Warsaw, Nazi authorities have issued regulations forbidding Jews in this area to use electricity and gas after 8 p.m., the Polish Ministry of Information reported today.

Other regulations for the Jews in the ghetto forbid them to leave the district without a special pass authorizing them to visit another part of the city. No Gentile is allowed to enter the ghetto without a similar pass.

Jewish doctors may, according to these regulations, still reside outside the ghetto. They will, however, have to display Mogen David signs (the six-pointed Star of David) on their shingles.
