The Algerian Provisional Government’s news agency, the APS, reported today that the Algerian nationalists have appealed publicly for the first time for the backing of Algerian Jews in the battle against the OAS, the secret European underground army in Algeria.

The APS reported that the Algerian Moslem Committee for the Struggle Against Fascism had distributed pamphlets throughout Algeria which carried this message: “Jews of Algeria, do not forget that the Secret Army equals fascism, anti-Semitism, Auschwitz, Buchenwald and the Warsaw Ghetto.” Posters bearing a similar message also were placed in Algerian cities.
