The Loyalty of Jews Whose Businesses Were Marked

"On Rue du Temple [in Paris]," writes BieIinky, "near the Place de la Republique, a large hosiery story is adorned with the yellow placard: 'Jewish business.' Below is a large white placard trimmed with cardboard in two colors: 'Establishment founded in 1909 by Maurice Levy, who gave his life for France at Douaumont in 1916. Establishment taken up again by his son, a veteran of the 1939- 1940 campaigns who was awarded the military war medal with citations.' "

From the testimony of Jacques BieIinky, a journalist and an art critic. BieIinky was a Jewish emigrant from Poland to France. He was deported to the extermination camp Sobibor in March 1943 and murdered.
