Hakenkreuzler Attack Workingmen’s Festival

An attack upon a festival of workingmen was made last night by Hakenkreuzler in Kloster-Neuhurg, near Vienna. The Hakenkreuzler fired about 100 shots on the gathering, shouting “Smash this Jew Republic.” 11 persons were wounded, 2 of them seriously. 50 Hakenkreuzler were arrested and on their way to the police station were nearly lynched by the crowd.
