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.
Our strength: as on the preceding day.
Our losses: 3 SS men wounded.
Owing to the excellent understanding between us and the Wehrmacht, the detachment of Engineers was reinforced. Moreover, a considerable amount of explosives was put at our disposal.
Termination of operation: 2200 hours. Will be continued on 11 May 1943, 0930 hours.
