intervened. The buildings, however, were surrounded
at once, so that an escape will hardly be possible. This cleansing action will
be continued tomorrow. Moreover, we arrested 17 Poles, among whom 2 Polish
Policemen, who should have been aware, among other things, of the existence of
this gang. In this operation we captured 3 rifles, 12 pistols, partly of
heavier caliber, 100 Polish "pineapple" hand grenades, 27 German
steel helmets, quite a number of German uniforms, tunics and coats which were
even furnished with ribbon of the East medal, some reserve magazines for
machine guns, 300 rounds of ammunition, etc. The leader of the raiding party
had a difficult task because the bandits were disguised in German uniform, but
despite this fact, he did his duty with great efficiency. Among the bandits,
who were caught or killed, there were some Polish terrorists who were
identified with certainty. Today we succeeded furthermore in discovering and
liquidating one of the founders and leaders of the Jewish-Polish resistance
movement. The external appearance of the Jews whom we are catching now shows
that it is now the turn of those Jews who were the leaders of the entire
resistance movement. They jumped from the burning windows and balconies,
abusing Germany and the Fuehrer and cursing the German soldiers.
SS-men who descended into the sewers discovered that a great number of corpses of perished Jews are being washed away by the water.
