A Nazi order expelling the Jews from Prague and isolating the Jews of other Czech towns into ghettos, is expected to be issued within the next few days, according to information reaching the Czechoslovak Government-in-exile here.

The pretext that the Jews are guilty of stirring-up anti-Nazi activities among the population in the Czech Protectorate will be offered by the Nazi administration as the reason for ordering the Jews to leave their homes. There are many Jews among the 210 Czechs executed in the course of this week in the Protectorate for alleged sabotage and on the charge of preparing an armed uprising. Among twelve victims executed in the city of Bruenn on Thursday, five were Jews, Czechoslovak circles here established today.
