Download PDF for this date

Nazi officers from Germany are accused by the Austrian police of having organized the bomb attacks on the Jews which featured the anti-Government Nazi demonstrations last week, according to an official communique.

A Colonel von Biehiel and a Captain Kraus are named by the police as responsible for planning the attacks. Both officers and their Austrian accomplices escaped to Germany, leaving behind them plans for further outrages against the Jews, the materialization of which was checked by the Government’s drastic actions to check the Nazi reign of terror.
