Download PDF for this date

A census of Jews has been started in the Limoges and Lyon districts. The Jews were given two days to register.

At the same time, it was learned that a list of Jewish families who settled in France before 1815 will be compiled by the Commissariat for Jewish Affairs for eventual exemption from the anti-Jewish laws.

A new list of denaturalized persons published in the Official Journal includes the names of Jacob Scheftel, member of the central administration of the ORT; the lawyer M. Frenkel who was entrusted with the defense of Herschel Grynszpan, and Mr. and Mrs. Rappoport, son-in-law and daughter of the painter, Marc Chagall. (Chagall arrived in New York on Saturday on the steamship Mouzinho from Lisbon.)
