“chronicle” Alarmed for German Jewry

Download PDF for this date

The London Jewish Chronicle carries a statement given to its special representative by the head of the Press Department of the German Government, von Putlitz, seeking to reassure the Jews that no unreasonable experiments will be embarked upon.

The paper, nevertheless, in an editorial, expresses alarm for the safety of the Jews.

The suspension of the lectures of Professor Ernst Cohn at the University of Breslau is an unmistakable indication of future Nazi policy which will lead to the complete expulsion of Jewish students and professors alike from high seats of learning, says the Chronicle.

“We must be prepared for a series of prosecuting administrative acts, embracing the safety of Jewish Staatenlose, Schechita and Jewish actors which will be most grave in their cumulative effect,” says the editorial.

“What guarantees Hindenburg has sccured from Hitler regarding the Jews is as yet wrapped in mystery, but the Nazi rank and file are behaving as though ‘der Tag’ for Jews has already arrived. Also Hitler’s broadcast last night, wherein he emphasized his intention to protect Christianity is open to a variety of interpretations.”
