Berlin Pogrom an Act of Infamy Against All Jewry Says Representative Assembly of Berlin Jewish Commu

The pogromist acts committed in Berlin on Rosh Hashanah are an act of infamy against all Jewry, says a resolution adopted unanimously by the special meeting of the Representative Assembly of the Berlin Jewish Community summoned to consider the situation created by the anti-Jewish excesses in Berlin. The Assembly went on to express its sympathy with the victims of the excesses, and took note of the fact that the Prussian Government and police had adopted measures for the protection of the Jewish population, and declared that it expects the Federal Government to provide similar protective measures.

The Representative Assembly concluded by approving the steps taken by the Board of the Berlin Jewish Community, adding that it expects that the Board will continue in the future to do everything necessary to secure Jewish life and the freedom of Jews to practise their religion.
