Cracow Jews Ordered to Give Up Homes

Download PDF for this date

Jews ordered to move into the Cracow ghetto must turnover their former homes in good order to the official caretaker, according to a decree of Governor Waechter published in the Krakauer Zeitung. Violation will be punished by immediate expulsion from the Cracow area.

Permission for a number of Jews to remain in the ghetto instead of being ousted from the city should be considered by the Jews as a “favor”, the Nazi Governor said. The majority of the Cracow Jews have already been expelled.
