Download PDF for this date

Two ghettos will be created in the Polish town of Otwock one for sick Jews and the other for the remaining Jewish inhabitants–according to Gazeta Zydowska, only Jewish newspaper in Nazi-occupied Poland.

The Warsaw ghetto has been divided into four sections, according to the newspaper. For the time being it is impossible to leave the ghetto. Later certain persons with occupations outside the walls will be allowed to leave, it was stated.

A Jewish theater has been opened in Warsaw which will employ a few scores of persons.
