Download PDF for this date

The Polish Government today announced that it is compiling “blacklists” of German scientists who are experimenting with new lethal gasses on Jews and Poles interned in concentration camps in occupied Poland. The lists of those conducting experiments in the death chambers of the Oswiecim and Treblinka camps will be made public soon, the announcement said.

The Nazi radio stations today reported that Robert Ley, German Labor Commissioner, addressing a conference of Nazi group leaders in Vienna, emphasized that the measures against Jews must be intensified. “You must not cease combatting the Jews as long as any Jew is still alive in Europe,” he was quoted as instructing the local Nazi rulers.
