Sentenced for Aiding Synagogue Desecrators

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The chairman of the Luenburg branch of the National Socialist Party, one of Chauvinistic groups which carries on intensive anti-Semitic propaganda, was sentenced to seven months in jail for aiding young hooligans to desecrate the local synagogue.

He was charged with inciting and aiding a group of young Hitlerites to carry out the misdeed. It was proven that he personally directed the attack and was on guard so that the police would not take them by surprise.
