Nazis Introduce Severe Anti-jewish Restrictions in Belgium

Hard on the heels of the reports from Holland concerning the deportation of Dutch Jews, information was received here today of new rigid restrictions on the Jews of Belgium.

Jews in Antwerp are forbidden, under the new regulations, to enter theatres or cinemas and to attend concerts, lectures or public meetings. Both in Antwerp and Brussels, Jews are now compelled to ride in special “Jim Crow” sections of street cars, usually the front platforms of the cars.
