Download PDF for this date

The Netherlands Government is protesting to Germany against destruction of Dutch Jewish shops in Berlin, Cologne and Aachen and is claiming damages.

Dutch Nazis have destroyed a Jewish children’s home near the Belgian border, it was learned here today.

Premier Hendrikus Colijn on Friday told Parliament that the Government would take strong measures to combat anti-Jewish activities in the Netherlands. His announcement, made in reply to demands voiced by all parties except the Nazi, included a vigorous denunciation of anti-Semitism. The Amsterdam Ashkenazi Jewish Community has telegraphed an appeal to Premier Colijn for admission to Holland of Jewish refugees from Germany.
