Jews in Vilna are now completely segregated from the rest of the population in a ghetto into which all Jewish businesses have also been transferred, according to the Rheinsch Westfalische Zeitung reaching here today.
Ulica Niemiecka, a well known business street which formerly housed most of the Jewish establishments in the city, has been made completely “Judenrein,” the paper reports, adding that “it is intolerable that Jews live on a street called ‘German Street’.”
Reporting that Jews who work in the city are marched to work from the ghetto in “serried ranks,” the German paper comments that the city now presents “a clean and calm aspect.”
