Brussels Nazi Quarters Forbidden by Mayor

Download PDF for this date

The mayor of Brussels today forbade the Belgian Nazis to open a Nazi home on one of the main streets of the city, which they recently bought and outfitted.

The mayor acted on complaints made by the merchants of the district, who objected to the Nazi home on the ground that it would interfere with business.

Although the Brussels authorities have forbidden the Nazis to place a Nazi inscription on the house, they are powerless to prevent the Nazis from meeting in the house or living there if they so desire.

The press complains that the Nazi house will require at least 1,200 policemen to guard it and protect the Hitlerites against the rage of the population.
