Jews Forbidden to Appear on Streets in Two Polish Cities

Download PDF for this date

Jews in the Nazi-held Polish cities of Piotrokow and Bendzin are forbidden to appear on the streets at any time, according to information reaching Polish circles here today.

Transfer of all Jews in the city of Kielce to the ghetto there has been completed, the same sources reported. All Jewish business in the city has been removed from the non-Jewish area. In Lublin, Jews are forbidden to use any but specially designated trains on the grounds that it is a measure to prevent the spread of epidemics.

The Nazi-controlled newspaper Nowy Kurier Warszawski, which reached here today, complains that Jews in Warsaw sometimes succeed in leaving the ghetto and mingle with the Polish population in the streets and cafes without the Poles protesting or taking any action against the Jews.
