THOUSANDS OF JEWS IN A NEW EXODUS FROM VIENNA TO POLAND --San Francisco Chronicle, Nov. 1, 1939
Warsaw Ghetto described as "Forbidden City cut off completely from "the teeming life around it". The high-rnaking German officer who accompanied the officer claimed that Jews preferred to live in the ghetto rather than be dispersed all over the city. This was "confirmed", the author observed, "by Jews who lived before last November in comfortable surroundings . . . and had been free to circulate anywhere in the city . . .[who] now live in a crowded room . . . and can leave only on those rare occasions when they obtain special permission." Editors note that "only the conquerors can speak freely to a reporter"; is it necessary to "read between the lines." -- Saturday Evening Post
"some reports received speak of massacres of Jews by Germans in the occupied part of Russia." --New York Herald Tribune
"The number of Jews killed in Kiev has been put as high as 52,000." --Ibid.
"purported stories . . . of persons said to have escaped."
"The Polish refugee's story of the Vilna massacre, of which he said he was an eyewitness, is impossible to confirm now." -- New York Times
