Reports from western Poland reveal that three buildings owned by Jewish groups in Stettin have been burned to the ground. The security police place responsibility for the arsons on Germans returning to their homeland, and eleven have been arrested.

The blaze, which caused no casualties, destroyed the headquarters of a Zionist youth organization, the local Jewish Central Committee, and the OSE.
