Download PDF for this date

A large number of Jews have been sent to forced labor in Czechoslovakian coal mines, it was learned here today. The mines at Kladno have started operations with a first shift consisting wholly of Jews.

In Bratislava, anti-Jewish activities continue unabated, the reports disclose. All Jews have been ordered to evacuate certain streets by March 31. Failure to do so will be punishable by fines and imprisonment, the Cardista, Hlinka Guard organ, writes.
