Attempt to Institute Boycott Against Famous Berlin Store

Following the reproduction in the Nazi “Voelkischer Beobachter” of a facsimile letter showing that the Tietz firm had contributed to the Communist election fund, Nazi storm troopers attempted to institute a boycott against the firm this afternoon.

Nazis erected a megaphone outside the famous Jewish department store on the Doehnoffplatz and filled the neighborhood with cries and shouts, calling upon the crowds not to buy from the Jews. The police endeavored to pacify the crowds and to induce the Nazis to disperse.

With reference to the facsimile letter in the “Beobachter,” the firm of Tietz has issued a statement stigmatizing the document as a complete fabrication and a forgery.
