The London press today continues to feature news from Berlin of the increasin influx of Jews fleeing from Poland because of anti-Semitis terror.

The Daily Mail reports that underground groups opposing the present Polish Government in Warsaw have taken a vow not to leave a single Jew alive in Poland. The (##)ia Krajowa,” one of these organizations, announced that it will not disband until Poland is completely ” Judenrein”.

Jews who reached Berlin from various cities in Poland during the week-end reported that systematic pogroms are being carried out all over Poland, including Warsaw, Lodz and Lublin, where most of the surviving Polish Jews are concentrated. Masked (##)ngs, using machine guns, are attacking Jewish homes, the refugees said.

The News-Chronicle reports from Berlin that an UNRRA transit center for Jewish refugees, which has room for 300 people, now has 1,200 Jews from Poland crowded into it. They sleep four in one bed and receive meager rations, but are not complaining since they are happy to get out of Poland.
