Nazis Reduce Warsaw Ghetto; Evict Tens of Thousands of Jews from Homes

Nazi newspapers reaching here today from occupied Poland report that the German administration in War saw intends to reduce the ghetto there to an area of a few blocks. Tens of thousands of Jews in the ghetto have already received notice to vacate the buildings in which they live, the German papers reveal.

The buildings from which the Jews are being ejected will be torn down. “Modern apartment houses and hospitals will be built in their place in the Spring of 1943,” the krakauer Zeitung states. The paper also reports that a new Nazi administrator has been named for the Warsaw ghetto. His salary, determined by authorities in Berlin, will have to be paid by the Jews in the ghetto, the Nazi organ declares.
