Download PDF for this date

The Nazi authorities in Poland have taken action to bar Jews completely from private employment, it was reported here today.

The Krakauer Zeitung published a decree of German Governor-General Hans Frank providing for issuance of labor cards “in order to bring efficient distribution of labor.” Jews will be forbidden such cards, without which no one may henceforth hold a job.
