Increasing pressure on Jews is reported in Paris, where a census of all Jews and apartments in which Jews dwell has been ordered by the Nazi occupation authorities.

The activity of anti-Semitic bodies, such as the “New Youth,” is being intensified, especially in the Jewish quarter. Jews are apprehensive about going out after dark because of numerous street incidents resulting from the activity of the anti-Semitic youth.

Ex-Deputy Salomon Grumbach and former Undersecretary of State Jules Moch were among four leaders of Leon Blum’s former Popular Front who were placed under “Administrative detention” yesterday at the village of Pellevoisin.
