Germans Forbid Jews in Holland to Wear War Decorations

Regulations issued by the Nazi administration in Holland prohibit Jews from wearing orders and war decorations, according to a report from Amsterdam published today in the Dagans Nyheter. The new regulations supplement the order issued by the Nazis last week ordering the Jews of Holland to wear a yellow Mogen David.

Other reports reaching here today from Holland state that the Nazi authorities in Amsterdam last week vetoed a decision of the local municipality to subsidize the Jewish ghetto schools. The Dutch held that Jews, though being isolated from the non-Jewish population in the city are still tax payers and thus entitled to receive municipal support for their schools.
