February 4, 1942
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

One of the two ghettos in Vilna has been “liquidated” by order of the Nazi authorities there and its Jewish inhabitants have been ordered to move to the already over-crowded ghetto in Baksht, a suburb of the city, according to a report appearing in the Deutsche Zeitung, which the Nazis publish in Vilna.

The German paper, which reached here today, states that this so-called second ghetto, was situated between German and Dominican streets.
