Download PDF for this date

The Paris newspaper Le Matin defends the German Military Command’s anti-Jewish measures in occupied France asserting in an article that the Jews are “not only the enemy No. 1 of the Nazi regime” but also of “European civilization.”

The Paris radio commenting on the ban on return of Jews to occupied France, said that Germany did not need any more Jews in the military zones. The announcer suggested that the registration of Jewish enterprises in occupied France be extended to include all firms having fifty per cent or more Jewish capital.
