Check on Nazi Terror Against Jews in Norway is Ordered

Download PDF for this date

Nazi terror against Jews has reached a point where the German occupational authorities have found it necessary to issue an order prohibiting “individual action with regard to the Jewish population, it is reported in the Swedish press today. The “individual action” of which the Nazi order speaks consisted of invading Jewish homes, smashing windows of Jewish stores, molesting Jews on the street and robbing Jewish property. Elaborate anti-Jewish laws exist in Norway as in the other occupied countries, despite the fact that there are only 1359 Jews in the whole of Norway.
