Norwegian Jews Will Be Sent “somewhere South of Equator,” Quisling Priest States

Download PDF for this date

The attitude of the Quisling-controlled church in Norway towards the Norwegian Jews was outlined here today by Rev. Sigmund Feyling, the under-secretary for religious affairs in the Quisling administration.

“The church will not take the initiative in enforcing any restrictions upon the Jews of Norway, but it is the duty of the church to respect the anti-Jewish measures introduced by the government,” Feyling stated, according to the Svenska Dagbladet.

“The fate of the Norwegian Jews,” Rev. Feyling continued, ” is closely connected with that of the Jews in the Reich. They will all be given sanctuary somewhere south of the Equator.”

It was predicted here today that Jews in Norway will be prohibited from buying certain foodstuff under the new rationing system which will be introduced shortly. The Jews will be placed in a special category under the food rationing regulations and will be given smaller rations than non-Jews.
