Jews in Czech Protectorate Permitted to Send Letters to Portugal

Download PDF for this date

Jews in the Czech Protectorate will henceforth be permitted to send one letter monthly to people residing in Spain and in Portugal, Nazi authorities in Prague announced.

The letters are not to exceed 100 words each and can be sent only after permission is granted by the chief of police in Prague through whom the correspondence is to be submitted to the postal authorities.

The Swiss press today reported that Sano Mach, Slovakian Propaganda Minister, who is responsible for the anti-Jewish propaganda in the Nazi-puppet state, fled the country soon after the news of Mussolini’s fall reached Slovakia. He is reported to be en route to Spain, from where, it is stated, he will try to reach South America. At the same time it is reported here that the local German press in Slovakia this week renewed its campaign against the Jews, charging them with spreading rumors of Anglo-American raids over German cities and blaming them for the growing food shortage.
