Nazis in Poland Reduce Bread Rations for Jews

Continued reduction of rations for Jews in Nazi-held Poland has brought the daily bread ration down to three ounces daily, it was reported today in Polish government circles.

The report says that the bad food situation in both annexed Poland and the territory of the Government General has resulted in many deaths from starvation and poisoning. The quality of the bread for Jews and Poles is inferior, frequently being made of ground peas, other admixtures, and even ingredients harmful to the health. The Germans, however, are getting more than a pound of first class bread a day.
