Jewish Guerrillas Operating in Poland; Evade Seizure by Nazis

Download PDF for this date

Jewish guerrillas are operating against German troops in Poland, the German radio admitted today. The units are concentrated chiefly in the Bendzin district, the broadcast said. It quoted Nazi newspapers in Poland as reporting that a 21-year old Polish Jew, Israel Blumenfruch, is the only guerrilla that the district police have succeeded in catching so far.

Polish circles here today received a report that a number of Moslems in occupied Poland, including their mufti Szynkewicz, are cooperating with the Nazi occupation authorities. The majority of the Moslem community in Poland, however, are participating in the anti-Nazi activities, the report emphasized.
