Mrs. Roosevelt’s Portrait Torn by Nazis in Feuchtwanger Home

Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt’s portrait, hanging in the study of Feuchtwanger’s Berlin house was torn up during the search by Nazis last week, it is revealed in an article by Lion Feuchtwanger published in the London “Evening Standard”.

The article which is under the caption of “I Warn Jew-Baiters”, describes the situation in Germany “as of a barbarism unprecedented since the Thirty Years War”. He throws the entire responsibility on “Hitler and Goering, who have armed 600,000 Nazis and made them believe that they would one day see the heads of people they have been taught to regard as opponents rolling in the dust, and lamp-posts decorated with their dead bodies.”
