Jewish Synagogue in Berlin Attacked by Hakenkreuzler

The Jewish synagogue on Linienstrasse, in the quarter of the Eastern Jews, was attacked by a group of twenty Hakenkreuzler last night.

During the prayer hour, when many worshippers were assembled, the Hakenkreuzler broke into the building, demolished the halls and beat the worshipers. The police intervened and arrested three of the attackers.
