The Polish Government-in-Exile today estimated that 100,000 Jewish flats and 2,000 factories and workshops were destroyed by Nazi gun fire in the Warsaw ghetto during the three-week battle between the Jews and Nazi troops. During the Nazi siege of Warsaw in 1939, only 76,000 apartments were destroyed in the entire city, the Government pointed out.
