Download PDF for this date

The District Governor of Torun today ordered the dissolution of the anti-Semitic National Democratic organization, “Obwiepol,” wherever its branches may be located throughout Pommerania.

Heavy punishment will be meted out to all those who persist in continuing their activities in this organization.

The District Governor gave as his reason for the dissolution order the fact that the “Obwiepol” threatened the public peace, spread incitement, set one part of the population against the other, and agitated for acts of violence.
