The top story of the day was again the expected German invasion of Belgium and the Netherlands. This was a real concern as Hitler had indeed planned to invade on Nov. 12th, but his Generals convinced him that the army was not ready and the invasion was postponed. The invasion finally took place on May 10, 1940 when Hitler invaded not only Belgium and the Netherlands, but France and Luxembourg as well.

Two reports which I thought interesting. Left, another report of the abuse Jews were receiving. At right an interesting report showing that 564 people had been killed in road accidents during the blackout. I have not been able to verify this, but I believe that this number is much higher than the number of people killed by German air raids.
