Second Anniversary of Destruction of Warsan Ghetto Marked by Yiddish Broadcast

Download PDF for this date

The second anniversary of the destruction of the Warsaw Ghetto was marked today in a special Yiddish broadcast over the Lublin radio. Speakers accused “Jewish ghetto police hired by the Germans, and fascist Ukrainians and Latvians” of murdering Jews who managed to escape from the ghetto to the non-Jewish section of the capital.

The broadcast paid tribute to the Jewish “scientists, artists and literary figures” who perished in the battle which preceded the liquidation of the ghetto.
