Special Court Releases Four Nazis when They Apologize to Jew for Attack

The special court today released four Nazis who appeared in court in full uniform of the Storm Troops, after they had publicly apologized to a Jewish cafe proprietor, Loewy, for attacking his cafe and insulting him and his wife.

The trial revealed that the attack had been instigated by a Christian cafe owner, a competitor of Loewy’s, who had first intoxicated the Nazis.

Another curious development at the trial was the reading into the record of a letter received by Loewy from a steady patron, Mrs. Friedlander, who apologized for being unable any longer to patronize his Jewish cafe “since it is unbecoming the mother-in-law of Goebbels.”

Paul Joseph Goebbels is the editor of “Der Angriff,” Nazi organ, and head of the Hitler party in Berlin.
