Queen Wilheimina Appoints Two Jews to Highest Dutch Council

Download PDF for this date

Two Jews are among the seventeen members named by Queen Wilhelmina to the Netherland’s Extraordinary Advisory Council here, it was learned today when the composition of the Council was announced.

One of the Jewish members in the important Dutch body is M. Sluyser, former editor of the Amsterdamer Het Volk. The name of the other Jew was not made public for fear of Nazi reprisals against members of his family who are still in occupied Holland.
