Jean Zay Sentenced to Exile

Former Education Minister Jean Zay, a Protestant of Jewish extraction, has been sentenced to permanent exile and degradation following conviction by a military court at Clermont-Ferrand of desertion in the presence of the enemy. He was a second lieutenant in the army. His defense was that he had gone to Morocco on the steamship Massilia with other French leaders under what they considered to be official instructions.
