Compulsory Labor Camps for All Jews in France Demanded by Anti-semitic Press

The establishment of compulsory labor camps for Jews in France is demanded by the anti-Semitic Royalist newspaper L’Action Francaise, which has launched a campaign for the internment of all Jews.

Copies of the paper reaching here today carry articles criticizing the authorities for allowing the Jews in France to remain “idle.” They argue that placing all Jews at forced labor “can become an excellent financial operation.” The money to buy implements for the Jews who will be driven to slave labor can be raised by selling confiscated Jewish property, the paper suggests.
