The German occupation authorities in Norway have decided to establish a ghetto for the estimated 1,300 Jews in the country along the shores of one of Norway’s famed fjords, it was learned here today.

At the same time reports reaching here from Brussels reveal that the Germans there are evacuating all Christians from a group of buildings in Anderlecht, a suburb of the Belgian capital, where they plan to set up a ghetto for all the Jewish residents of Brussels.
