Children, Aged Jews Murdered in Wholesale Massacres; Able-bodied Jews Vanish

“Jewish children up to the age of twelve have been executed by the thousands without any mercy since the Exterminating Office was established,” the report states. “Elderly Jews have similarly been murdered in wholesale massacres. Able-bodied Jews were registered and deported to unknown destinations and have vanished without any trace. Jewish women have also been arrested and deported to unknown places.

The report includes an eye-witness account stating that of the 30,000 Jews in the ghetto in Kielce, about 27,000 were deported during the last two months.
