Administrative and biographical
After the Belgian capitulation on 28 May 1940, Hitler established a Military Administration for Belgium and Northern France. This interim occupation authority was led by Alexander von Falkenhausen from its establishment until July 1944, although as of Autumn 1942 the SS tried to obtain the instalment of a civil administration due to rivalry between several German organisations. On 18 July 1944, the Military Administration was replaced by a civil administration under the rule of Gauleiter Josef Grohé who became the Reichskommissar of the Reichskommissariat Belgien und Nordfrankreich. The Reichskommissariat exited from 6 weeks before Belgium was liberated in September 1944.
The Militärbefehlshaber in Belgien und Nordfrankreich was responsible for the publication of all ordinances in force in Belgium and northern France (Nord and Pas-de-Calais provinces) in the Verordnungsblatt, the official state gazette under the German occupation. The booklets were published regularly and contained all types of legislation, including anti-Jewish measures.
