Consternation over Appointment of Notorious Anti-semite

Download PDF for this date

Consternation was raised over the appointment of Dr. Best, author of the notorious Boxheim documents, to the command of the entire police force of Hessen. He has also been appointed Assistant Commissaire for Hessen.
