A letter dated May 11, 1942, from the Red Cross organization in Brussels (Bruxelles) to Mr. Ch. Krivine, notifying him that the Association of Belgian Jewry intends to request of the German governor, General [Alexander von] Falkenhausen, to ease [the restrictions on] Jews' movement within the state. The writer asks that the request be limited to something more modest for various reasons: Jews are liable to be punished in the event of acts of sagotage against the Germans; anti - Jewish factors in the government are liable to request intensified measures against Jews; a postwar Belgian goverment is liable to form the mistaken impression that Jews were enjoying benefits while they were suffering deprivations.
