Eighty years on. 27th November 1939


The Finnish Government denied the shelling of Mainila (reported yesterday), claiming that the firing had come from the Soviet side of the border.

In Germany Aryans were given a 12-month deadline by which they had to divorce their Jewish spouses.  In Lublin, a labour camp holding about 45,000 Jews deported from other countries, an epidemic of typhus broke out.

It was decided that no Nobel Peace Prize would be awarded in 1939.
