Download PDF for this date

Documents confirming the reports that Japanese authorities in the newly occupied territories of the Far East have embarked on a policy of brutal anti-Jewish persecutions similar to that practiced by the Nazis, were received here today.

While these documents cannot be published in full at present, the details therein reveal that Japanese terror against the Jews follows the Nazi model. It is estimated here that about 3,000 Jews have fallen under Japanese administration in the occupied British territories of Burma, Malaya and Hong Kong, in addition to over 20,000 Jewish refugees in Shanghai.
