Shechita Prohibited in Three German Cities

The press here reports the official announcement of the prohibition of Shechita, both in Cologne and Siegburg.

Shechita has also been prohibited in Bonn by the State Commissioner, with immediate enforcement.

The English press also records that while acts of violence against Jewish stores have ceased in Berlin, west Germany, particularly Frankfurt, is still suffering from the violent agitation against Jewish business houses.

The London “Daily Express” relates an interesting case tending to show that the Nazi authorities are attempting to impose a curb on their followers. It tells of three Nazis who robbed Jewish merchants of £40; they were subsequently arrested by Nazi police, stripped of their Nazi emblems, expelled from the Party, and put on trial for robbery with violence.
