Germans Using 14-year Old Jewish Children for Slave Labor, Allies Report

Allied circles today received information revealing that the Nazis are using fourteen-year-old Jewish children for slave labor in Germany as well as in all Nazi-occupied territories.

The Jewish youths work under the same severe regulations as Jewish adults, the information revealed. Long hours of hard work, coupled with undernourishment, are taking a heavy toll of the children who are officially denied the protection of the German law covering child labor.
