In an attempt to destroy the traces of their crimes, Gestapo authorities in occupied Poland have executed fifty Lithuanian and Ukrainian pro-Nazi policemen in the city of Byalistok, who witnessed the mass-murder of Jews in that city and who participated in it, Dziennik Polski, organ of the Polish Government-in-exile, reports today.

Dutch circles here reported today that despite the announcement by the Nazis that Holland is completely “judenrein,” pro-Nazi elements there arranged a huge anti-Jewish meeting at the Hague at which the audience was told that “the Jew is fighting his last battle” and that “there will no longer be any room for the Jew when Europe is rebuilt under Germany’s leadership.”
