VICHY (Apr. 27)
The Paris prefecture of police has established a special “Jewish service” to handle all police activities affecting Paris Jews, the Nazi-controlled Paris press reported today.
The new department is under the control of M. Francois, head of the aliens’ division of the prefecture.
The move follows the establishment by the Nazi authorities of a central Jewish organization to unify all Jewish activities in occupied France. French Jews refused to cooperate in its establishment and the occupation authorities established a “provisional direction” of Jewish affairs under the direction of a Jewish social worker.
