(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Two thousand eight hundred persons were present at a mass meeting held at the Stadhalle called under the auspices of the Jewish World War Veterans’ Association, to protest against the desecration of the Jewish cemtery at Koepinick near Berlin.

A resolution was adopted urging the authorities to take measures for the punishment of the anti-Semitic agitators who mislead the youth to commit vandalistic acts. Representatives of the Ministry of Justice and the Interior were present and promised energetic measures.
