The reason for and the circum stances behind the slaying were not known, but it was believed to have happened while the agent

was carrying out some act of pro vocation among the Polish work ers. As soon as the murder was discovered, the Gestapo organized a pogrom in the Zytnia quarter of the section, which was cor doned off. Everyone in the street at the time, including women and children, was beaten up. Flats and shops were demolished. Later it was officially announced that 100 Jews and 100 Christians had been shot in reprisal for the murder. The 200 victims were rounded up at random in streets and homes and executed without trial. An official announcement warned the population that hence forth murder of an official would be punished by the execution of not less than 100 Jews and 100 Young People’s League WUI Meet March 29th The Young People’s League of the United Synagogue of Ameri ca will hold its Sixteenth Annual National Convention in three ses sions on the week-end of Friday, March 29, at the Benjamin Frank lin Hotel in Philadelphia, accord ing to an announcement by Sam uel Ribner, National President, from the headquarters of the Or ganization in Manhattan. More than 1,000 delegates are expected to attend the delibera tions in Philadelphia from the four hundred youth organizations, which are affiliated with the Young People’s League, in all sec tions of the United States. Supplementary audiences at tending hundreds of radio parties sponsored by B’nai B’rith lodges in the metropolitan area will hear the program at home gatherings and neighborhood rallies to which loud speakers will carry the ex ercises to be broadcast over the Mutual Broadcasting System on Station WOR from 3 to 4 P, M. 2,000,000 FACE FIRST PASSOVER WITHOUT MATZOTH PARIS (JTA) —The problem of supplying 2,000,000 Jew in Nazi held territories with matzoth for the approaching Passover holi-, day is being discussed by central Jewish relief organizations here. Consideration of the problem, which has become acute since the conquest of Poland, followed an appeal by the Vienna Jewish Com munity urging world Jewry to secure timely delivery of the un leavened bread in Nazi areas. With Passover near and with the difficulties which Jews in Nazi territories face in obtaining even ordinary rationed bread, Jewish communities in Germany and Aus tria feel that unless Passover feed is sent in from abroad all the Jews under the Nazi regime will for the first time in their history be with out matzoth on the holiday. non-Jews. Harried by disease, hunger, Nazi sadism and plunder, War saw’s entire Jewish population of more than 400,000 was reliably reported to be facing extinction within a comparatively short time. Unless help arrives soon, an nihilation of the entire Jewish community of the former Polish capital is a matter of months. This was the conviction expressed in an eyewitness report of the latest developments in the Nazi held city, received here through a trustworthy source. Brotherhood Week Being Observed In Many Communities NEW YORK (JTA)—Spurred by a message from President Roosevelt urging rededication to brotherhood and unity against prejudice and intolerance, the seventh annual Brotherhood Week was observed this week in more than 1,000 communities through church services, interfaith rallies, school-exercises, radio programs, dinners and other events under the sponsorship of the National Conference of Christians and Jews. Ripley, Believe It Or Not! AMSTERDAM (JTA—Dr. Hans Frank, Nazi Governor-General for Poland, in an interview with for eign correspondents, had the fol lowing to say about the Jews: (1) The Jews are unhampered by decrees in any activities. “I have made no decrees to hinder them in their trades or profes sions. There are no racial laws preventing them from mingling with or intermarrying with Poles.” (2) There is not one concen tration camp in the entire terri tory. (3) No Jews have been force fully resettled, but Jews who “im migrated” into the Government- General from Greater German ter ritories have been “settled in the Lublin area, where there was “plenty of room.” Jewish Calender Join a Synagogue Attend Its Services 1940—5700 •Rosh Chodesh Adar n Mar. 11 Fast of Esther March 21 Purim March 24 Rosh Chodesh Nisan April 9 Passover (Ist day) April 23 Passover (7th day) April 29 Passover (Bth day) April 30 Rosh Chodesh Iyar May 9 Lag B’Omer.
