Berlin Fascist Urge Pogrom at Secret Meeting

Download PDF for this date

A pogrom on the Jews was urged at a secret meeting of the National Socialists called to discuss their political program in view of their recent political victory. A stenographic report of the speeches made at this meeting appears in the last edition of the Berlin newspaper, Tempo.

Tempo reports that the leader of the Berlin Hitlerites, M. Goebbels, recently fined for slandering President von Hindenburg, declared “we must control the government by getting the posts of the ministries of the interior and war. Should the doors, however, remain closed to us for a long time we shall then break the doors forcibly. I am told that the Jews possess the only measures to prevent the success of some of our leaders. When a single Hitlerite leader falls we shall answer with a pogrom on the Jews.”
