The Central Union of German Citizens of the Jewish Faith issued a proclamation today declaring that the terror, the libels against the Jews and the threats have in the past few weeks reached impossible dimensions.

In Breslau the rumor has been spread that the Jews hide arms in synagogues. In Sensburg, the Jews are compelled by the Nazis to keep their shops closed.

The Central Union is accused by the Nazi press as being the center for issuing secret orders for the murders of Nazis.

The proclamation is signed by Dr. Julius Brodnitz, president of the Central Union and Dr. Ludwig Hollaender, director.
