Download PDF for this date

The Moscow radio reported today that the Germans had murdered 20,000 Jews in the city of Dnepropetrovsk, liberated this week by the Russian Army. It added that the last 12,000 Vilna Jews, deported by the Germans some time ago to isolated places in Lithuania had perished.

Swedish press reports say that property of Danish Jews which the Germans confiscated and shipped to the Reich is now being distributed among “families in Germany who have shown courage during the Anglo-American air raids” on various German cities.
