Nazis Make Warsaw “judenrein”, Deport Remaining Jews from Ghetto

Download PDF for this date

The city of Warsaw where the Nazis concentrated 500,000 Jews in the first Jewish ghetto established in occupied Poland, is now completely “judenrein,” according to information reaching here today.

Not a single Jew remains in the Warsaw ghetto, the report received here today from Poland stated. The several thousand Jewish artisans there who were permitted to remain after the mass-deportation of hundreds of thousands of Jews, because they were considered “valuable” to German war industries, were all deported from the city in the middle of last month.

The report reveals that mass-executions of Jews in Poland have assumed new proportions during the last few weeks. It states that there are at present only 17,000 Jews left in Sosnowiec to where tens of thousands of Jews were driven from various cities in Central Poland, and that no more than 4,000 Jews now remain in the Cracow ghetto.
