In the occupied area, the Germans almost immediately curtailed press freedom with the setting up of a Pressezentrale. The directions were clear: German military achievements were to be presented in a positive light, not a word was to be said about the Belgian government, and reports that could foment hatred of Germany were forbidden.
In order to offset the German censorship and propaganda, a flourishing underground press sprang up. No fewer than eighty papers appeared clandestinely during the war.
Can you discover censorship in these newspapers?
