Deportations of Jews from Germany Soon to Be Resumed; Reich to Be Judenrein by June

Download PDF for this date

Deportation of Jews from Germany to Poland will be resumed at the end of next month, with a view toward making the entire Reich “judenrein” within the first half of 1942, it is reported today by the Berlin correspondent of the pro-Nazi newspaper, Aftonbladet.

According to the reports reaching here, the recent lull in deportations is due to the lack of available transportation facilities to carry the Jews eastward. The Berlin authorities, therefore, have decided not to resume deportations until the end of January. At that time it is expected that they will be renewed on even a larger scale than heretofore, in order to evacuate all the German Jews by the end of June.
