Five members of the National Socialist party found guilty of desecrating the Kottbuster synagogue in Berlin, have been sentenced to five months imprisonment. Of the entire quintet none is over twenty. At first they behaved impudently but later expressed regret and said that they committed the desecration while they were drunk. It is noteworthy that Adolph Hitler, leader of the National Socialist party, has ordered them expelled from the party.
