Polish Jews in Belgium Being Deported to Polish Ghettos

Download PDF for this date

Jews of Polish origin who are now living in Belgium are being deported to Poland in connection with the compulsory organization of a central Jewish body under Nazi control, it is learned in Belgian circles here today.

The first group of eighty-three families have already been deported from Antwarp to the Krasznik ghetto, these Belgian sources report. Even naturalized Polish Jews who have children born in Belgium will be affected by the new regulations.
