Download PDF for this date

Belgian Jews who persist in trading with German firms in the face of disapproval by the Jewish community may be barred from synagogues, it was stated in a dispatch received here from Antwerp.

In that city a movement is already under way to boycott Jews who continue dealing with Germany. A special committee composed of representatives of various Jewish organizations has circularized all Jews with a request that they break off trade relstions with Germany because the Germans “murdered 6,000,000 of our brothers and sisters.”
