The bandits testified further that the Prosta is now
the refuge for the still existing Jews because the Ghetto has become too hot
for them. For this reason, I resolved to deal with the Prosta in the same
manner as with the Ghetto, and to destroy this miniature Ghetto.
Today, we again captured small arms and some ammunition.
The Security Police yesterday
succeeded in capturing a workshop outside the Ghetto which manufactured
10,000 to 11,000 explosive charges and other ammunition.
