About four hundred Jews from the city of Pristina near Skopje are rounded 
up by the Germans and transported to the Sajmiste concentration camp near 
Belgrade and later deported to Bergen-Belsen; only one hundred will return 
after the war. (USHMM 1994 , 42)

Several members of the British Parliament make speeches protesting anti-semitism 
in the Polish Army in England.  Since January more than two hundred Jews in the 
Polish Army have deserted because of alleged antisemitism in the ranks, asking 
for transfer to the British forces. After much public debate, attempts to 
court-marshall the men were dropped, and they were discharged from the Polish 
Army and offered employment in British mines. (Ibid.)
