Eight Jews are among the 171 Czechs executed within the past few days by the Nazis, the Prague radio announced today. The executions are part of the continued reprisals for the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich.

A report from Sofia reaching here today states that the Bulgarian Government has issued a decree forbidding Jews to be shareholders or employees, or agents of navigation companies.
