Download PDF for this date

All the workers in a Nazi factory near Skarzysk, in Poland, were forced recently to witness the execution of an employee named Nowak who had extended assistance to Jews, it is reported today by underground sources.

Nowak went to the gallows shouting: “Long live Poland,” the report said. When the gallows rope broke, dropping Nowak to the ground, he was shot dead by a Gestapo official, it adds.
