Notes
Content: German reports stressed the idea that French refugees had been driven from their homes by their government having filled them with groundless fears of the advancing invaders. German soldiers, it was said, were working to rehouse people, repair infrastructure and generally set things right again.
Content: Picture caption: "Die gewissenlose Hetze hatte Frankreichs Zivilbevölkerung zu Flüchtlingen gemacht, die zu Hunderttausenden auf den Landstrassen umherirrten. Deutsche Organisation und deutsche Militärärzte nahmen sich der Familien an."
