More Refugees Arrive in Polish Provincial Centers, Burdening Local Jews

A thousand Jewish refugees from various localities of Nazi-occupied Poland have arrived in Kielce and the Local Jewish community is arranging for their accommodation, reports Gazeta Zydowska, Jewish organ in Poland.

All the Jews have been expelled from Leczyca. Six hundred of them arrived in Grabow, 600 in Poddebica and the rest settled in neighboring villages.

March 20 has been set as the deadline for the remaining Jews in Cracow to move into the ghetto being set up in the Kazimir quarter, which was a ghetto in the Middle Ages. “Aryans” living in the ghetto area and Jews living outside have been ordered to exchange residences.
