Jews Evacuate 4 Polish Cities

Download PDF for this date

The newspaper Politiken reports from Berlin that trains carrying Jews from the Bohemia-Moravia Protectorate were continuously proceeding to Lodz en route to the projected Jewish “reservation” in the Lublin area of Poland.

Gdynia, Radomsk, Poznan and Kattowice in Poland have already been completely evacuated by Jews, the paper said, and it is reported that evacuation has started in Frankfort-am-Oder and Breslau in the Old Reich, with removal of Jews from Berlin scheduled to start shortly.

The “reservation” will be completely isolated by barbed wire, particularly towards the Soviet Frontier, the dispatch declared. Jewish communities are compelled to organize the migration and pay for it by liquidating the Jews’ property left behind.
