Jews Attacked by Neo-nazis

Download PDF for this date

Jewish demonstrators against the resurgence of Nazism in Western Europe were manhandled by neo-Nazis in the small Belgian town of Braine-le-Comte yesterday. Several Jewish demonstrators were slightly wounded when members of the neo-Nazi Flemish organization, “Vlaamse Militante Order,” attacked them with iron bars and sticks.

The Jewish demonstrators, who came to protest against the publication of Nazi literature by one of the village printing presses, had marched through the city first and laid a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The Jewish Students Union of Belgium has lodged a complaint against the neo-Nazi assailants.
