Download PDF for this date

Registration of Jews in France has been extended to include all children, it was reported today by Radio Paris. Under a new order of the prefecture of police all French and foreign Jews must register their children under fifteen, whether or not the children are of the Jewish faith. This same rule applies to legal guardians of Jewish children even if the guardians are not Jewish.
