    ... they were clearing the town from typhoid. Actions such as these continued. Eight days before Hanukkah the Kreishauptmann called the Judenrat represen-tatives to his office and told them in anger, that he won stand for the disregard of his command to transfer Jews from our town into neighboring towns. Therefore he said. "You are give eight days in which to select and prepare 1,000 Jews (not one less) and deport them to the nearest town. "Podhaica".
