Anti-semitic Near Riot in Frankfort

Download PDF for this date

A near riot of an anti-Jewish character was prevented by the intervention of the police last night when a group of hooligans invaded the Garden Restaurants at Oberforsthaus.

The group, members of the National Socialist party, carried swastika flags and shouting “Germany awake, down with Judea,” started to attack Jewish guests. Panic-stricken, the guests filed. The police ordered an investigation.
