Germans Murdering Jews in Northern Italy; Jewish Property Confiscated

Jewish terror is in full swing in all the Nazi-held sections of Italy, according to reports reaching here today, which confirm in detail earlier fragmentary information received on Friday.

The reports said that all property belonging to Italian Jews has been confiscated by the German occupation authorities and villas of wealthy Jews have been plundered. Many Jews were killed when they resisted Nazi soldiers who had come to loot their homes. German refugees seized by the Nazis are reported to have been immediately executed.

The Italian Jews were pointed out to the Gestapo by local fascists, the reports add. The blackshirts provided the Germans with lists of all Jews, natives and refugees, residing in their districts.
