Download PDF for this date

Anti-Senitic agitation is increasing in Nazi-occupied Norway and Denmark, it was reported here today.

Orvar Saether, chief of staff of the Rikshird, Quisling’s Norwegian storm troops, published a statement in the Quisling organ Fritt Folk demanding that Norwegians avoid all contact with Jews. It urged that Norwegians avoid buying from or selling to Jews, consulting Jewish physicians and lawyers, working for Jews, admitting Jews to restaurants, theaters and cinemas.

In Denmark, cries of “Death to the Jews!” were voiced at a Clausenist mass meeting in Copenhagen, the first to be held since the announcement of the intensified anti-Jewish drive. According to the Danish Nazi organ Faedrelandet, 6,000 persons heard Fritz Clausen tell of the “social misery” caused by “the Jewish dominated democracy.”
