Download PDF for this date

Complete destruction of the Jewish quarter in the city of Bialystok was reported today by the Nazi-controlled Polish paper Wieski Polski. This would indicate that the huge ghetto reported set up in Bialystok for all the Jews remaining in the city and its environs, has been erected on the outskirts of the city.

Meanwhile information reaching here from Lwow discloses that special street cars for Jews have been introduced in the Nazi-held Polish city. The reports states that every third single street car, and the second section of every double car are marked with the inscription: “For Jews Only.” Jews are forbidden to use any other cars.
