Swastika to Fly for Three Days from Synagogues and Kehillah Buildings

Download PDF for this date

The black and white lettered Swastika, the emblem of the Nazis, is to fly from all synagogues and Jewish communal buildings, in accordance with a decree sanctioned by Hindenburg. The decree, which has now been broadacast by Hitler, makes the Swastika flag of equal status with the national emblem, and directs all public buildings to fly it during Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week.
