Court Hears Appeal of Editors Accusing Hitler

Download PDF for this date

As is already known, several editors of both right and left newspapers in Germany were sentenced to pay fines for declaring that Adolph Hitler, anti-Semitic leader, took money from Mussolini.

Yesterday an appeal from these sentences was heard in a Munich court. During the trial, the lawyer for the defence asked the witness Rosenberg, Hitler’s “foreign minister,” if Luedecke, Hitler’s foreign agent, had written him that he, Luedecke, had asked Henry Ford to subsidize Hitler’s “National-Socialist” party.

Hitler’s attorney became very nervous and asked that the court declare the question out of order, upon which the court ruled out the question.
