Jews Ordered to Leave Lublin; Nazi Press Reports Lack of Food in Ghettos

The entire Jewish population of Lublin has been ordered to move outside of the city limits under the pretext that “Lublin has now become a German city,” it is reported in Nazi newspapers reaching here today from Berlin.

The same newspapers report that the municipal administrations in cities where there are Jewish ghettos now find it difficult to supply the populations in the ghettos with food. The shortage of food for the Jews is explained in the Nazi press as due to the fact that bread and other foodstuffs must now be sent in larger quantities to the German soldiers fighting on the Soviet front.
