Boundaries of Warsaw Ghetto Reported Shrinking

Download PDF for this date

The boundaries of the ghetto in Warsaw have been narrowed, leaving less living space for the Jews, according to information reaching Polish Government circles here today. The boundaries were reportedly still not exactly defined and undergoing continuous changes.

The Nazis were said to be transferring to the ghetto non-Jewish wives who refused to divorce their Jewish husbands. Entry of non-Jews into the ghetto is permitted only to holders of special passes. This restriction is applied even to uniformed police officials. A street car is still permitted to cross the ghetto without making any stops within ghetto territory. Prior to entering the ghetto gates the cars are inspected by German police to make certain that no Jew jumps into the moving car while passing the ghetto.
