Nazis Prohibit Dutch Papers from Printing Reports of Jewish Deaths in German Camps

Download PDF for this date

Dutch papers are now forbidden to print any news concerning the death in Nazi concentration camps of Dutch Jews confined there, according to information reaching Dutch circles here today.

Up until now Dutch papers have been allowed to publish news of the deaths without mentioning the place where the victims died. Recently, however, the reports have been so frequent that the Nazi authorities clamped down a complete censorship on such news.

It was disclosed earlier in the week that some 300 Dutch Jews in the Buchenwald concentration camp in Germany, rounded up after the disturbances in Amsterdam last February, have died.

Another order by the Nazi authorities in Holland, reported today from Stockholm, makes it compulsory for all motion picture theatres in the Netherlands to show the anti-Semitic film, “The Eternal Jew.”
