Nazi Press Reports Sosnowiec is “judenrein”: Jews Slaughtered in Rowno

Download PDF for this date

German newspapers reaching here today reported that not a single Jew has been left in the city of Sosnowiec, Poland, and that mass-executions of Jews are being carried out in the city of Rowno. They also revealed that a number of towns in the Czech Protectorate “have been cleared of Jews” during the last two weeks, including the town of Tabor.

Quoting the Berliner Boersen Zeitung which carries a report on the executions of Jews in Rowno, the Swedish newspaper Swenska Dagbladet says that many Jews from Nazi-occupied countries of Central and Western Europe are now being transported to the Rowno district which constituted the Polish-Russian border before the war and are undergoing there “a biological extermination.”
