Germans Have Slain One-Third of 3,130,000 Jewish Poles
and Plan to Exterminate the Rest

(December 11, 1942)

The New York Times reported on page 8 that the Polish Government had forwarded a request that the Allies restrain the Germans from exterminating the Jewish population of Poland. The Polish note estimated that one-third of the Jewish population of 3,130,000 had been killed. The government said it believed the Allies shared its opinion that the crimes of the Germans should be condemned and the perpetrators punished. Its message added that despite a warning of punishment issued by the St. James Palace Conference in January 1941, the Germans continued their campaign of violence and terror.
