The entire Bialystok district, including the city of Bialystok where the Nazis have now segregated the Jews in a ghetto, will be incorporated into the Reich as a part of East Prussia, the Nazi press reports.

The Nazi press reaching here also reports that many Jews in the Nazi-occupied Minsk district failed to make their escape with the retreating Russian armies and are now in German hands.
