Anti-semites Renew Ritual Murder Charge

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Ritual murder agitation is being conducted by the “Illustrierter Beobachter”, a publication of the anti-Semitic group headed by Adolf Hitler.

The newspaper publishes articles in which the Jews are accused of performing ritual murder and pictures purporting to show Jews drawing blood from a Christian boy accompany the articles.

The “C. V. Zeitung”, the organ of the Central Verein Deutschen Buerger des Juedischen Glaubens, demands today that the Berlin police intervene and confiscate the issue.

The Luisenstrasse and the Neue Wilhelm Strasse in Berlin, as far down as Unter den Linden are to be improved and laid out as a Boulevard to be named after the late Hugo Preuss, the author of the Constitution of the German Republic, who died in October, 1925.

This decision has just been made by the Highways Commission of the Berlin City Council on a vote of nine for and seven abstaining. It is expected that the plenary session of the City Council will agree to the proposal.
