Download PDF for this date

Nazi-published newspapers in Poland reaching here today report the resumption of mass-expulsions and executions of Jews in practically every section of the country.

In the township of Gora-Kalwarja, the seat of the famous Gerer Rebbe, the entire Jewish population was ordered to leave for the Warsaw ghetto. Only four of the 3,500 Jews there were permitted to remain in their homes, the Krakauer Zeitung reports. In the city of Wloclawek two Jews were executed for listening to Polish broadcasts from London.

The Krakauer Zeitung also reports that stricter measures are to be introduced against Jews and Poles in the districts of Bialystok, Grodno and Lomzha where the number of Jews is estimated to be about 150,000. All the three districts, the paper informs, have now been merged into one province which will not be incorporated in either the Government General or the Ostland section.

The Deutsche Zeitung, Nazi organ in Ostland, reports that all Jews in the Baltic countries, which form part of the Ostland province, have been ordered to supply their full quota of warm clothing and underwear for the German troops by tomorrow. The paper says that Governor Lohse, Nazi administrator for Ostland, is “disappointed” with the results of the clothing collection campaign for the German army.
