Nazis Erase the Entire Jewish Section of the City of Lublin

The German press reaching here today reports that the entire Jewish quarter in the city of Lublin, with the exception of a few houses, has been demolished by the local occupational authorities.

“A public park will now be planted on these grounds,” one of the Berlin newspapers states. It boasts that “with the erasing of the Lublin ghetto, an important center of European Judaism has disappeared.” The city of Lublin had the largest Jewish orthodox seminary in Europe. All the students of the seminary were deported from the city when the entire Jewish population was expelled from Lublin.
