Jews in New Ghetto Receive No Food Except in Return for Manufactured Articles

The 10,000 Jewish residents of a new ghetto which the Nazis have established in the Lublin district, some distance outside of the city proper, receive no food whatsoever, except in return for handicraft and industrial products which the Germans are forcing them to produce, it was reported today by the Berlin correspondent of the Svenska Dagbladet.

This is part of the new German policy, already introduced in the ghettos of Warsaw and other large Polish cities, under which the ghetto inhabitants are being utilized to clothe the Nazi war machine. Uniforms, shoes and similar products are being manufactured under German supervisors.

The new ghetto in the Lublin district has been completely surrounded with barbed wire and communication with persons outside is strictly forbidden except under the direct supervision of the German authorities, the Dagbladet reports.
