Download PDF for this date

Jews in the Dodecanese Islands, off the coast of Turkey, have been placed in camps and many have been deported, the underground Greek radio reported today.

Jews on Rhodes, the largest of the islands, which are populated by Greeks, have been confined in concentration camps following previous restrictions on their places of residence. All Jews on Cos were sent to Leros, from which they were deported to an unknown destination.
