German Election Passes Without Anti-jewish Disturbances; Nazis Fail to Secure Two-thirds Majority Fo

The general election has passed off both in Berlin and the provinces without anti-Jewish disturbances.

During the whole of the week-end German Jewry lived in a state of unrelaxed tension, which was not diminished by the marching and countermarching of Nazi torch-light processions and parades throughout the country.

There was, however, a recrudescence of activity against the Central Union of German Citizens of the Jewish Faith during the week-end. At Erfurt, Dortmund, and Essen, the local offices of the Union were raided by Nazi Auxiliary Police. In these three cities a great deal of alarm was aroused among Jews by these raids, though nothing incriminating was found.
