A broadcast from liberated Dutch territory heard here today said that a Coordinating Commission to Safeguard Jewish Interests has been established.

A central registry office for Jews has also been set up, and is engaged in compiling a register of all Jewish families who resided in the Netherlands as of May 10, 1940, for the purpose of reuniting families separated by the Germans.
