Rebels Said Planning to Jail Jews

The official Nazi press uniformly reported yesterday that Spanish Fascists were planning to place all Jews within their jurisdiction into concentration camps.

“This will prove a difficult task,” asserted the Essener National Zeitung, commenting on the report, “since most Spanish Jews hide their racial origin by changing their religion.”

There are approximately 27,000 Jews in Spain and its Moroccan territories, about 7,000 of whom reside on the mainland.
