Summary Justice for Jewish Cemetery Desecrators in Hamburg: Nine Months for One and Six Months for T

The two young men who were caught by the Police climbing back over the wall of the Jewish cemetery in Hamburg after having devastated a number of graves there, have to-day been sent to prison by the court of summary jurisdiction.

One of the prisoners, Franz von Jordan, 25 years of age, is the son of Ministerial-Councillor Jordan of the Federal Ministry of Finance.

Jordan has been sent to prison for six months, and the other, Ludwig Krausdorfer, 28 years of age, has been sent to prison for nine months.

We are National-Socialists, both of them declared in court, but we did not knock the gravestones down. We were taking a short cut through the Jewish cemetery and some of the gravestones happened to fall down as we passed.
