Moscow Releases Names of French Jews Killed by Gestapo in “death Camp” in Poland

The first list of names of Jews murdered by Germans in the “extermination camp” in Majdanek near Lublin, was secured here today by the correspondent of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency from the Russian authorities investigating the Gestapo annihilation of innocent civilians in the liberated Lublin area.

The list contains chiefly names of French Jews, transported to Poland and killed in the “death chambers” of the Majdanek camp. Thus far only one record book with six hundred names has been made accessible to the press. Scores of such books with thousands of Jewish names are expected to be “deciphered” within the near future.
