Berlin Vorwaerts To Pay 6,000,000 Marks Damages For Saying Hitler Got “Jewish and Ford Money.”

Adolph Hitler, leader of the Bavarian Fascisti, was awarded yesterday 6,000,000 marks, damages in his libel suit against the editor of the Vorwaerts, the Socialist daily of Berlin.

The libel proceedings against the Socialist editor were instituted by the reactionary leader of Bavaria following the publication by the Vorwaerts of a report that the Hitler Organization was receiving financial aid from “American Jews and Henry Ford.”
