Holland Bans Anti-nazi Book, “the Brown Network”

Download PDF for this date

Minister of Justice von Schaik today banned from Holland the anti-Nazi book, “The Brown Network,” purporting to expose activities of Nazi agents abroad, after reported objections by the German Embassy here.

The book was issued this year under the editorship of Rudolph Breda, a German emigre who is at present in New York. It was published by the Editions du Carrefour in Paris. The title page states the book reveals “how Hitler’s agents work abroad and prepare for war.” An English edition is to be issued shortly in London.
