Brussels look-up in newspaper archives -- Big Mystery! #general


bbaum
 

I would greatly appreciate it if someone in Belgium (Brussels) can
track down a newspaper article about a Jewish Brigade veteran by the
name of Reinhold who was kidnapped off the streets of Brussels around
May 14 (or 17), 1947. Yes, 1947!
A newspaper reporter spotted the kidnapping and quickly got the police
to give chase. The kidnappers were caught, put on trial and sent to
jail. Reinhold, who was injured and sent to the hospital, disappeared
>from Brussels a short time later with the help of British Secret
Service. Big mystery.

The kidnapping incident was written up in a one or more newspapers in
Brussels around the dates listed above. I hope someone has access to an
electronic search archive of newspaper articles that can access those
dates. Thank you very much.
