Nazis Plan to Intern All Jews of Norway

Download PDF for this date

A large number of Norwegian Jews, including both native-born and foreign, have been confined in a concentration comp in the North of Norway, it is reported today in the Svenska Dagbladet. It is planned to gradually collect all the 1,359 Jews in Norway and place then in this camp, the report adds. Meanwhile, all Jewish businesses have been taken over by Norwegian administrators.

The Jews in the concentration camp, which is commanded by a Quislingist officer, are employed on agricultural work. Although the inmates are allowed to live without too much restraint, the discipline is rigid, the Dagbladet states.
