Europe: Leave is cancelled for all Dutch and Belgian troops as concerns grow over German troop movements in the west. Leave is also canceled for the British expeditionary force stationed in France.

USA: Eighteen members of the pro Nazi Bund organisation are arrested for conspiracy.

Warsaw: It is estimated that deaths from starvation in the Jewish Ghetto are occurring at a rate of 70 per day.
