Nazis Mistaken for Jews in Berlin Street and Knocked Down by Other Nazis: Refuse to Take Proceedings

Dr. Erich Haukold, a Berlin veterinary surgeon, and a businessman named August Risch, while walking in the Gruenewald district were attacked by two Nazis who shouted “Kill the Jews”. They were knocked down and beaten, and sustained slight injuries.

The police caught one of the Nazi aggressors, Erich Boehm, but the two victims insisted that he should be set free, declaring that they themselves were Nazis, and did not wish to have proceedings taken against a comrade.
