Polish Security Police Establishes Office to Deal with Jews

Download PDF for this date

A special section to deal with Jews has been established in the Polish Security Police, it was reported here today.

The department, known officially as the Special Bureau for the Registration of the Population of Jewish Origin, has headquarters in Bialystok and is headed by a Russian Col. Morozov, the port added. It said that Morozov’s orders from the Soviet secret police were to compile a list of “unreliable” Jews, who would be interned in new labor camps being built in the Bialystok region.

The report that a number of Jewish officers in the Polish Army, who were stationed along Poland’s border or in the coastal region, have been transferred to minor posts in the Bialystok area. These, it predicted, would be the most likely to be included in the first groups to be interned when the camps were completed.
