Germans Dissolve the Only Jewish Relief Institution in Poland

German authorities in Poland have dissolved the Jewish Relief Organization in Cracow, which was the only Jewish group permitted to exist in Poland, it was reported here today.

The dissolution of the relief body was disclosed by the American Representation of the General Jewish Worker’s Union of Poland on the basis of information it received from the Jewish underground movement. All members of the relief agency, Including Dr. Michael Weichert and David Hilfstein, have been deported from Cracow, the report said. “They disappeared without a trace,” it added.
