Download PDF for this date

Jews from Bulgaria are fleeing to Italian-occupied Albania in the hope of reaching Italy and remaining there until the country surrender to the Allied forces, it was reported here today.

The report is partly substantiated by the Nazi Transcontinent Press which today states that four Jewish families in Bulgaria have been arrested while trying to cross the frontier into Albania.
