All Jewish Officials in North Africa Restored to Office, Receive Full Back Pay

All Jewish officials in North Africa who were ousted from office in June, 1940, as a result of the anti-Jewish legislation promulgated at that time by the Vichy Government, have been restored to their positions by the Giraud administration, according to an announcement by the Minister of the Interior for French North Africa, reported in the London press today. The report adds that these officials have been given back salaries for the entire period they were out of office.

(The Associated Press reported from Tunisia yesterday that all anti-Semitic measures introduced there by the Axis powers have been revoked. The Jewish Council, which had been suppressed by the Nazi authorities, has been reestablished.)
