Many Arrested in Holland in New Anti-jewish Drive

Download PDF for this date

The Gestapo in Holland has launched a new anti-Jewish campaign with a wave of arrests, especially among refugees from Germany, on the present that they were “conspiring against the security of the occupation forces,” it was reported here today.

According to the Algemeen Handelsblad, numerous emigrant Jews have been arrested and sent to labor camps following an explosion recently in south Amsterdam which injured German military personnel and damaged German material. The German security police were stated to have “found” that Jews, particularly emigrants from Germany, had “acted for months in an anti-German manner.”

Simultaneous with the arrests, property of Jews have been confiscated. The anti-Jewish drive is apparently intended to discredit the growing opposition movement, manifesting itself in violence against the Nazi-favored Mussert supporters, who, the National Dagblad admits, are “ridiculed, despised and slandered.”
