Reichstag Vote Lifts Immunity of Editor of 12 Anti-semitic Journals

The immunity of Deputy Strasser, member of the anti-Semitic national socialist party, was lifted by a decision of the Reichstag, after it was proven that the deputy had abused his immunity to become the responsible editor of twelve anti-Semitic journals which indulge in continuous attack and libel.

When the decision was announced, a stormy scene was enacted in the Reichstag by the anti-Semitic deputies. They shouted that the country was a “Jewish republic.” Count Reventlow, notorious anti-Semite, exclaimed that the Reichstag was “the sexton of the Central Union of German Citizens of the Jewish Faith.”
