Nazis Draft Jewish Specialists in Holland for Skilled Work in Germany

Download PDF for this date

The Nazi authorities have resorted to drafting Dutch Jews of special skills for work in Germany proper because of the acute shortage of highly skilled labor, it was learned today.

Disclosure of this development was made when the Amsterdam Jewish Council was compelled by the Gestapo to publish a special announcement in the Joodsche Weekblad, warning that all Jews not obeying within two days a summons to work in the Reich would be arrested and sent to the salt and sulphur mines in Upper Austria.
