Japan Establishes Ghetto for Jews in Manila; Says Jews Spy for the Allies

June 27, 1943
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The London press reports today that Japanese authorities in Manila have isolated the Jews in a ghetto and have prohibited them from coming into contact with other sections of the population.

The measure, the report says, is explained by the Japanese as necessitated by the fact that “the Jews have played a leading part in guerilla activities and have acted as spies for England and America.”
