London Paper Reports Anti-jewish Riots in City

Download PDF for this date

Investigation was being undertaken yesterday into startling reports of anti-Jewish activities in the London District which appeared in the Sunday Express.

According to the Sunday Express, a veritable man hunt was under way Saturday with German Nazis, Italian Fascisti, and British Fascists driving all Jews and persons with Jewish facial characteristics from restaurants and manhandling all who refused to obey their orders immediately.

Throughout the Soho sector of London pickets were stationed outside public eating houses and Jews became objects of their clubs and fists, according to the report.

The situation in the vicinity of Trafalgar Square was tense yesterday in anticipation of a meeting of the German, Italian, and British Fascist forces.
