A warning against sending parcels to Jews in Nazi held Poland was issued here today by the Swedish General Post Office.

Sent to post-office branches throughout the country, the warning says that senders of parcels to Poland are to be notified by postal clerks that German authorities in Poland confiscate all packages addressed to Jews without paying any compensation to the sender.
