Download PDF for this date

Reliable reports reaching here today disclose that the German police have received instructions that every Jew remaining in Germany must be deported to Poland before August 1. Mass-deportations of Reich Jews continue, the reports state, with hundreds being jammed into freight cars daily and sent eastward.

Mass-expulsions of German Jews, which had been halted during the winter months because of lack of facilities on the heavily-taxed German railroads, was resumed the last week of June when fifty leading members of the Berlin Jewish Community, including its president, Dr. Heinrich Stahl, were sent to Poland.
