Program of the Ghetto Newspaper
From today on, a newspaper in the Yiddish language will begin to appear in the ghetto, under the title of "Ghetto Newspaper."
The "Ghetto Newspaper" will strive to inform the inhabitants of the ghetto objectively regarding everything that takes place in the ghetto; to clarify exactly what is permitted and what is not permitted in the ghetto.
The "Ghetto Newspaper" will shed light on all questions that concern nourishment, labor, etc.
The "Ghetto Newspaper" will give the population the opportunity to become acquainted with my work in all areas of ghetto life.
The "Ghetto Newspaper" will not allow the various malevolent agitators and gossips to spread irresponsible rumors that are liable to lead to chaos and unrest within the population.
The "Ghetto Newspaper" will bring only the news that corresponds to the absolute truth.
The "Ghetto Newspaper" will devote more space to the most important occurrences that take place in the ghetto.
The "Ghetto Newspaper" will put to shame the thieves and all those who abuse their offices to the harm of the ghetto population.
The "Ghetto Newspaper" will regularly provide information regarding the activities of all my various departments, offices, and labor divisions and regarding my plans for the near future.
The "Ghetto Newspaper" will publish the names of those sentenced by my court and those disciplined administratively by me in person.
The "Ghetto Newspaper" will fight corruption and patronage systems in all my offices without any mercy.
I take this opportunity to remind you of the 5 slogans advanced by me at the time of our entry into the ghetto, and those are:
Care for the Sick
Supervision over the Children, and
Calm in the Ghetto
I have based my activism until now upon these very slogans, and I will continue to conduct it in the same spirit, disregarding the malevolent troublemakers and agitators coming from various sides.
I will not deviate a hair's breadth from the program detailed above.
