Nazis Execute Jews Deported from France to Poland; More Executions Feared

A majority of the Jews deported from France to the district of Lodz and Pabjanice, in occupied Poland, have been executed by the Nazis, it was revealed in a report reaching here today. Those who were left alive, according to the same source, are working eighteen hours each day on construction work and road building.

“It is expected that with the advent of the rainy season, when construction work will no longer be possible, the remaining Jews will also be massacred,” the report adds.

In addition to using Jews from Western European countries for hard labor in the mines of Upper-Silesia, the Nazis have also segregated some of the Jews from Holland and Belgium in eight isolated townships in the Lublin area in Poland. The places mentioned in the report are: Izbica, Krasnystaw, Modliborzyce, Piaski, Trawniki, Ossowa, Ujasdow and Deutsch-Horst.
