Fascists Attack Jews in Cologne Cabaret

Download PDF for this date

The Sunday Express reports that the first blood shed as a result of the victory of the German National Socialists (Fascists) was Jewish blood. The paper says that a gang of Hitlerites raided a cabaret in Cologne yesterday and created a panic by firing revolvers, cutting telephone wires, thus preventing the summoning of the police, and then beating Edler and Urbach, two Jews, into unconsciousness.
