“Woe, woe unto Jerusalem. Tremble, for the day of reckoning comes, when you will be utterly destroyed from among the living”. A pamphlet bearing this text, published by a Hitlerist agitator named Hochmut, who has already served a term of two years’ imprisonment for incendiarism, has resulted in the law court in the Berlin district of Schoenberg fining him 350 Marks to-day for incitement to class-hatred and stirring up enmity against the Jewish section of the population.
