Jews in Nazi Poland Forbidden to Receive Registered Mail

Download PDF for this date

Jews living in Nazi Poland may not receive registered mail, under a new Nazi edict, it was reported today by the American Jewish Congress.

A letter addressed by one of its representatives to a former prominent personality in Warsaw, was returned to its sender after a six-weeks round trip with the imprint in French “registered letters may not be sent to Jews.” This notice is signed by the postal bureau of Warsaw. Underneath it is the seal of the Nazi war command.
