The first "Jewish train" to transport Jews deported from large cities in Slovakia to ghettos in remote provincial townships is now being assembled in Bratislava, according to information reaching the Czechoslovak government here today.
Early in November the train will carry 1,500 Jews from Bratislava to ghettos in Sered, Novaky and Orgulas. 10,000 more Jews will be deported on similar "Jewish trains" soon after the first group leaves the Slovak capital, the information reveals.
