In June 1942, the obligation to wear a yellow patch was imposed. This prepared us for the end of the Jewish front. The Star of David turns us into beasts destined for slaughter...", Among other things, there is testimony about a Jew who was executed by hanging, a comprehensive article about anti-Semitism in England during the World War by J. B., horrifying testimonies about groups of Jews in Belgium taken by the SS for the slaughter, a section appears describing the abuse of the Jews: "Like hungry dogs ... we run in circles...", a section appears on "Dictatorship or Poetic Art 1945" which describes the harsh scenes of children who died of starvation, a long essay against the Nazi racial theory, an instructive section about the devotion of Israel in all the past and ongoing pogroms, a review of Belgian Jewry by the editor David Scheinert, and more. The names of the other authors and subjects appear on the cover (see photo).
