Nazis Attack Berlin Cafe Frequented by Jews

Download PDF for this date

The Nazi truce of peace in connection with the Christmas holidays was broken last night and the Nazi agitation against and attack upon the Jews was resumed.

Nazi Storm Troops, attending a mass meeting last night, proceeded to abuse the Jews verbally, shouting “Judaea Perish!” culminating in an attack upon the Cafe Lunte, frequented by Jewish artists.

Jewish guests in the cafe were beaten up and the furnishings of the place demolished.

Several Nazi demonstrations which were inaugurated, were dispersed by the police.
