Germany May Pay Pogrom Damages

The prompt and apparently effective suppression of the Hitler-Ludendorff putch has strengthened the Stresemann Government and there is every hope that complete order will be restored in the Reich.

Berlin is quiet, experiencing the calm following a storm. The Government has promised to take measures to prevent further anti-Jewish disturbances.

Reparation to the victims of the looting is being considered by the authorities and a special Jewish Commission has been authorized to investigate the disorders and submit an estimate of the losses.

Persons suspected of leadership and direct participation in the anti-Jewish riots will be arrested, it is announced. The arrest here of Richard Kunze, notorious anti-Semitic leader, and inventor of a special cudgel known as “Knuppelkunze”, a weapon popular with the rioters, is regarded as a step in the direction promised by the Government.
