Jews in France Ordered to Report to Police Headquarters

Download PDF for this date

All male Jews in the Rhone Department of France who were born between January, 1912, and December, 1922, have been ordered to report, together with their identification and food cards to the central police commissariat at Lyons, it is reported in the French newspaper, Le Journal, which arrived here today.

The order also provides the same procedure for foreign Jews born between January, 1893 and December, 1924. The paper did not indicate what action would be taken when the Jews appeared at the Lyons police headquarters.
