Arrests Trace Cemetery Desecration to Hitlerites

Download PDF for this date

Arrests made by the Berlin police trace definitely the vandalistic acts of desecrating Jewish cemeteries in Germany to the influence of the anti-Semitic propaganda carried on by the Hitlertites.

In the 70th Jewish cemetery desecration case which occurred last week in Gladbeck, the police arrested two 17 year old youths who, when identified, were proven to be members of the anti-Semitic Hitler organization.

The Munich court yesterday sentenced Herr Esser, editor of the Hitlerite newspaper “Illustrierter Beobachter,” to fourteen days imprisonment for publishing a caricature of Dr. Weiss, vice-president of the Berlin police, with a derisive inscription.
