Nazis Attack Justice Palace; Menace Jewish President

Download PDF for this date

The Palace of Justice was attacked here by Nazis, its furnishings smashed, and the Jewish president of the Chamber menaced.

The swastika, symbol of the anti-Semites, was chalked over the chambers of the palace together with the slogan “Perish Judaea!”

The Nazis disappeared before the arrival of the police.

The damage wrought is estimated at 5,000 schillings.

As a result of this incident, all those desiring to enter the palace will henceforth be compelled to produce credentials.
