Belgian Socialists Fight Libel Charge Against Jewish Aliens

Download PDF for this date

The Socialist deputies in the Belgian parliament today began an action against the notorious anti-Semitic news-newspaper Lassaut because the paper charged that the Socialist deputies headed by Mayor Camile of Antwerp had formed a naturalization office where “every foreign Jew, on payment of money, obtains Belgian citizenship rights.”

Belgian Jewry is awaiting the trial with great interest since the verdict of the court is expected to help check the growing Nazi anti-Semitic agitation in a section of the Belgian press.
