Daubing of Swastikas on Jewish Shops Condemned by Brussels Mayor

Download PDF for this date

The daubing of swastikas and anti-Semitic slogans on Jewish shops here was condemned today by the Mayor of Brussels at a meeting of the Municipal Council.

In rejecting a request for an urgent debate by the Municipal Council on the anti-Semitic acts, the Mayor termed the daubing “a crime of a particularly odious character” but pointed out that this was a matter of concern to Belgium’s state organs of justice and not the municipality. “A debate at the Municipal Council would not serve any purpose,” he said.
