Nazis Forcing Jewish Hostages to Ride Military Trains in Belgium

As a result of increasing sabotage which is seriously hampering movements of German troops and supplies in occupied Belgium, the Nazis are now compelling five Jewish and ten non-Jewish hostages to ride in every other car of trains bearing soldiers or war materials, according to information reaching Belgian government circles here today.

Meanwhile, the Rexists, the Belgian Nazis, have started a campaign to convince the Belgian population that Jews are the perpetrators of all acts of sabotage and are using Belgians as their tools. “Jews are causing the death and imprisonment of non-Jews as a result of acts of sabotage instigated by them,” a Rexist speaker declared at a meeting this week in Brussels.
