Anti- Jewish Terror Spread in German Towns

Download PDF for this date

The spread of an anti-Jewish agitation in Mecklenburg towns is reported by the “Berliner Tageblatt” today.

In Gnojen, Mecklenberg, the anti-Semites posted large placards at the entrance and along the thoroughfares of the city, containing the following descriptions: “German Girls Avoid Jewish Company!” “Do Not Purchase from Jews.” At night, members of the anti-Semitic National Socialist party arranged “katzenjammer” music in front of Jewish homes. The police do not interfere with these doings.

At Malchow, a war memorial in the form of a huge Swastika, the emblem of the anti-Semites, was erected. The curious thing about this memorial is that among the 17 names of war heroes recorded there are names of Jewish soldiers who fell during the World War.
