Germans Forbid Jews in Holland to Wear War Decorations

Download PDF for this date

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.
