Armed Hitlerites Attack Jewish Houses in Cologne

Windows were smashed, gunshots fired and the Jewish population terrorized when a band of 30 Nazis attacked the house of Ottmar Straus, a Jewish industrialist, and the residence of other Jews nearby, here today.

Considerable damage was done in the Straus home as well in that of Heinz Unger, a Jewish professor of music in the Cologne high school. The Nazis deliberately fired into the Unger house. They missed the professor but scores of bullet holes spoiled furniture.
