Jews Flee Germany, Fearing Anti-semitic Disturbances

Download PDF for this date

A large number of Jews from various parts of Germany, especially from Bavaria, are leaving for Holland, Switzerland and other nearby countries, fearing serious anti-Jewish developments as a result of the great election victory of the Hitlerites, today’s German provincial press reports. The papers add, however, that the flight of the Jews is due to over-anxiety because thus far there have been no attacks on the Jews.

A number of Hitlerites who raised the cry of “down with the Jews” in the streets of Berlin today were badly injured in a clash that followed. Their injuries were too severe to be attended to at a first aid station and they were taken to the nearest hospital which happened to be a Jewish institution where they were immediately operated on by Jewish physicians and are now resting in a ward with Jewish patients.
