A special correspondent of the Berlin Boersen-Zeitung after a tour of Nazi-occupied Poland, states that the Jews have been completely removed from Cracow except a few employed as street sweepers. Previous attempts to oust all Jews from the capital of the Polish Government-General had failed.

The Warsaw ghetto is inhabited by 560,000 Jews and has the character of a separate town with its own police and administration, the report says. Another 35,000 Jews are in the ghetto in Radom. No ghetto has yet been established in Kielce.
