Gestapo Chief Heydrich Confers with French Commissar for Jewish Affairs

Reinhard Heydrich, deputy chief of the Gestapo, who was sent from Prague to Paris to introduce new methods of crushing growing anti-Nazi resistance there, conferred with Commissar for Jewish Affairs Darquier de Pellepoix before leaving for Holland, according to reports reaching here today.

An indication of Heydrich’s “new methods” was contained in a broadcast on the Berlin radio which reported that a fifteen-year-old Jewish boy named Kirschen has been sentenced by the Paris military court to ten years’ imprisonment for alleged anti-German activities in France.

Another Berlin broadcast heard here today reported that a court in the German capital has ruled that Jews can not be sentenced to loss of civil rights “because Jews do not have any civil rights.”
