Download PDF for this date

The synagogue in Goettingen was attacked by four Nazis in uniform on Friday evening and the beadle, David Tanstein, beaten up and left unconscious.

Tanstein was rushed to the hospital where his injuries were found to be so serious that an immediate operation was performed.

“This is our revenge for our two comrades who were stabbed yesterday in Duesseldorf,” the Nazis shouted. All four were arrested.
