Nazi administrative authorities in Belgium have established a new concentration camp for Jews, according to information reaching Belgian circles here today.

The camp, modeled along the lines of the notorious Dachau concentration camp, in Germany, is located in Breendonik, near Antwerp. Conditions in this “Jewish camp” are so bad that seven internees are reported to have died in one day.
