|Death penalty for Jews outside ghetto and
for Poles helping Jews anyway 1941
Regarding: death penalty for illegal leaving the Jewish residential district
Recently, in many documented instances, Jews, who have left the residential
districts designated for them, have spread typhus. To safeguard the population
against this dangerous threat, the General Governor has ordered that any Jew,
who in the future illegally leaves the residential district designated for him, will be
punished by death.
The same punishment will apply to whoever consciously shelters Jews mentioned
above or in any other way assists them (for instance, by providing overnight
accommodation, or sustenance, by giving a ride in any kind of vehicle, etc.)
The sentence will be imposed by the Special Court in Warsaw.
I explicitly draw the attention of the whole population of the Warsaw District to this
new regulation since henceforth it will be applied with merciless severity.
Warsaw, 10 November 1941
