A special official stamp stating “Died in the course of the liquidation of the Jewish problem” is being used by the German postal authorities in Poland and the Baltic States when returning letters addressed to Jews who were victims of the mass executions. A letter bearing such a stamp has just been received here.

The Moscow radio today reported that German war prisoners testified that in Vilna they witnessed the massacre of twenty members of the Hakeah sport organization which was declared illegal by the Nazis immediately after their occupation of the city.
