A report that the Nazis are considering the expulsion of all Jewish from Poland into occupied Soviet territory is published today in the Tidningens, Swedish daily newspaper.

The same report, coming from the Berlin correspondent of the paper, revealed that the Nazi authorities have begun negotiations with the French government for converting the French island of Madagascar into “a great absorption depot” for all Jews of Europe including those of France. The correspondent adds that Hitler prefers to have the Jews of Poland also sent to Madagascar instead of forcing them on Russian soil.
