Acquit Anti-jewish Agitator in Hanover

Download PDF for this date

The anti-Semitic agitator Meunchmeyer, former clergyman, who was tried by the Hanover court for making anti-Semitic references in his public addresses, was acquitted of the charges against him.

Meunchmeyer admitted that he frequently referred to the Reich as a “Jewish republic” and that he had stated that “Rathenau’s murder was Germany’s fortune.” The Liberal press criticizes the verdict of the court and points out that the blame is to be laid at the door of the German Federal Court which recently handed down a decision in a similar case that speaking of the Reich as a Jewish republic constitutes no offense.
