Jewish Mass Expulsion Starts in Vilna

October 29, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Jews not in possession of Polish passports, but holding temporary permits to reside in the Vilna district are being arrested wholesale, and deported, in consequence, it is alleged, of the Warsaw Citadel explosion.

Many of the Jewish residents, although lacking the necessary documents; who were not disturbed during the expulsion of refugees last year, will now be expelled. Some of them will be sent across the frontier to Lithuania, others to Russia. All intervention on behalf of the refugees has failed.
