Download PDF for this date

Hitlerists who had occupied all the upper rows of seats in the Theatre at the famous health resort Bad Homburg during a performance last night of the well-known comedy “Reinicke Fuchs” (Reynard the Fox) by Heinrich Anton, created a panic among the audience, almost entirely children, by firing revolver shots in an attempt to stop the play, because the playwright is a Jew, Dr. Heinrich Simon, the editor-in-chief of the “Frankfurter Zeitung”, who writes under the pen-name of Heinrich Anton. The police were called in and cleared the whole of the upper rows, ejecting the Hitlerists from the Theatre.
