Nazis Forced to Employ Ousted Jewish Workers; Dr. Lieberman’s Property Confiscated

The acute shortage of labor throughout Germany has resulted in the fact that the Nazi authorities in Lodz and the surrounding district have been compelled to re-admit thousands of Jewish textile workers into local factories from which they had been ousted, according to information received here today from Nazi-held Poland.

It is estimated that about 60,000 qualified Jewish industrial laborers are now working in German factories in the Warthegau province which includes the city of Lodz. The Jewish workers are paid less than the non-Jews and must return to the ghetto after their day’s work.

The official Nazi gazette for occupied Poland which reached here today announces the confiscation of all the property of Dr. Herman Lieberman, late Minister of Justice in the Polish Cabinet in London. The confiscated property of the Jewish minister consists of movable objects which he left in Przemyal and in Warsaw.
