Hamburg Jewish Paper Allowed to Reappear

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish weekly published in Hamburg under the title of “Israelitisches Familienblatt” has received permission to reappear following an order that all copy be submitted for censorship in advance of publication. Of the fifty employees on the German-written weekly, only seven are Jews. The original prohibition followed the publication of an imaginary dialogue between a teacher and a pupil on the subject of anti-Semitism.
