Belgian Fascist Paper Demands Public Relief Groups Halt Assistance to Jews

A violent attack on public relief committees throughout occupied Belgium for continuing to extend assistance to Jews is contained in a recent issue of the Belgian Rexist organ, Le Pays Reel, a copy of which was received here today.

Demanding that “Aryan money be kept for Aryans,” the paper writes that Jews must be assisted solely by the Jewish Council of Belgium, “one of whose aims is to help Jews.” The Jewish Council is the Nazi-dominated central Jewish body which was formed at the time the occupation authorities liquidated all then existing Jewish groups.
