Download PDF for this date

The central organ of the National Socialist Party was fined 200 schillings, with an alternative of four days imprisonment for its editors, for insulting a Jewish merchant.

The court ruled that while the term “Jew” was not insulting, the intention to create contempt through its use constitutes contempt.
