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

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.
