Jews Driven from Cafes in Paris; Non-jew Arrested for Wearing Yellow Badge

Download PDF for this date

With Jews in occupied France now easily distinguishable because of the yellow Mogen David which they are required to wear, a group of young followers of Jacques Doriot’s anti-Semitic party today invaded every cafe in Paris on the fashionable Champs Elysees and forced all Jews present to leave the establishments.

One French non-Jew was arrested during a similar raid on cafes in another section of Paris. He is charged with wearing a yellow Mogen David which he donned as an expression of sympathy with his wife who is a Jewess.
