Nazi circles admit that their attempt to establish a Jewish reservation in Lublin, Poland, has failed hopelessly and that the scheme has been jettisoned with the explanation that it is impossible to solve the Jewish problem while the war is under way the Daily Herald reports in a Stockholm dispatch.

The Nazi newspaper Die Mergenpost, published in Upper Silesia, was quoted as saying that Germany planned to solve the Jewish problem in Europe by expelling all Jews to Africa where a special colony would be established under German-Italian supervision.
