American Troops Liberate 190 Jewish Slave Laborers in Hanover; All from Poland

London newspapers report from Hanover, Germany, that when American advance units entered the city, they found 190 Jewish survivors in shacks, some of them so ill and starved that they may not live.

The survivors, all that remained of many Jews deported from Poland for slave labor in Hanover, are now being treated by American doctors. They are all lice-ridden, clothed in dirty rags and hardly look like human beings, the report says.
