“death to All Jews”: How Hitlerists Show Their Resentment at Esperantists Honouring Memory of Their

At Bad Reinerz, in Silesia, the Esperantist Association has just erected a monument to Dr. Ludwig Zamenhof, the inventor of Esperanto, and has put a memorial slab on the Hotel Metropole in the town to commemorate the fact that Dr. Zamenhof stayed there once taking a cure.

Immediately after the ceremony of unveiling the monument, Hitlerists smeared big swastikas over the monument, and painted on the walls of the hotel “Death to all Jews”.

The Mayor of the town, on giving instructions to the police to trace the vandals and to see that they should be punished, has received letters threatening that if he does not stop the search, he will be killed.
