75,000 Jews in Lwow Put Under Ukrainian Supervision: 100,000 Jews Segregated in Vila

An order issued by the Nazi authorities in the Polish city of Lwow, capital of Eastern Galicia, puts all the 75,000 Jews there under direct supervision of the Ukrainian police, it is reported here today in Polish circles.

Another report states that more than 100,000 Jews are now being held in the newly established ghetto in Vilna, isolated from the rest of the world within barbed-wire walls. The Nazi police guarding the ghetto gates have received orders to shoot without warning anyone attempting to escape from the ghetto or those who try to communicate with the ghetto Jews through barbed-wire fences. The Jews in the ghetto have been forced to give up all valuables and warm clothing to the Nazi authorities.
