Nazis Plan “jewish States” in Russia As Part of “balkanization” Plan

Download PDF for this date

Possible creation of two “Jewish States” in Russia as part of the Nazi plan for “Balkanization” of the Soviet Union by creating Jewish, Czech, Pole, Slovak, Lithuanian, Slovene and other states, was reported today in Allied circles here.

For some time it has been known here that many Nazi factions agree that it is “uneconomic” to concentrate Jews in ghettos where they are unable even to grow their own food. These groups feel that it would be wiser to undertake the creation of a “ghetto state.”
