Download PDF for this date

Raids on Jews in Paris continued during the weekend with many Jews arrested. In the Fourth Ward of the city all Jewish residents were ordered to report to police headquarters, it was reported here today from Paris.

Further details of the law which permits the Commissioner for Jewish. Affairs to appoint temporary administrators to liquidate Jewish industrial, commercial and artisan enterprises were made known here today. They disclose that the Commissioner is authorized to advance sums to the owners of the liquidated Jewish establishments from the account of the blocked proceeds from the sale of their property. The precautions included in the law which provide supervision of the temporary administrators of Jewish property were ordered as a result of the large number of complaints from the Nazi-occupied part of France that many of the appointed “Aryan” administrators used their position for personal profit and for frauds.
