Were Angry at Seeing Well-dressed Jews Wearing Silk Hats Some of the Prisoners Say: I Hate Jews Beca

We were angry at seeing Jews going about wearing silk hats, some of the prisoners declared in their evidence to-day.

I hate the Jews because all our troubles are due to the Jewish press, one of them, a shop-assistant named Heinz Schubert said. Another of the prisoners, a young clerk named Neede, said:

I saw a well dressed man and I felt angry because he looked so prosperous, so I hit him in the face. I am a good boxer, so I gave the Jew fellow a knock-out.

Another, a student named Roy, said that he had only carried out the orders given him by Erich Ponke, the leader of his storm detachment.
