Vichy Bars French Jews from Buying Stock in Any Enterprise

Download PDF for this date

Jews in France may no longer purchase stock in any enterprise unless first granted special permission, under a new decree just passed. It is expected that further laws will prohibit Jews entirely from operating in stock companies and from acquiring any economic influence under corporate guise.

The Lyons regional office of the General Jewish Commissariat announced the placing of 36 Jewish enterprises under temporary administration. This means that “Aryans” have been appointed to direct the firms until sale or other liquidation.
