Former French Premiers Leon Blum and Paul Reynaud and former Minister of the Interior Georges Mandel are imprisoned in Koenigsberg, in Western Prussia, according to a broadcast on the British Broadcasting System’s French language program today.

The broadcast stated that “it was learned last November that the Vichy authorities had turned Paul Reynaud and Georges Mandel over to the Germans; at that time there was no mention of Leon Blum.”
