Bombing of German Synagogues Was to Be Signal for Putsche

The bombing of the Jewish synagogues in the cities of Frankfort, Leipzig and Breslau were to be the signals for a general putsche in Germany, according to the admissions of four members of the anti-Semitic Bluecher group, whose trial started today in Leipsig.

They also admitted that the preparations for this putsche, prior to their arrest, had reached the stage where dynamite had been procured. They involved in this conspiracy Prof. Ruge and other anti-Semitic leaders, as well as Captain Pomarede, French Connection Officer in Frankfort.
