Agents Spy on Jewish Refugees Says Nazi Sheet

Download PDF for this date

An admission that German agents are spying on Jews abroad was made today by the Deutsche Woche, Nazi organ, in the course of an article which tried to create the impression that the entire anti-German boycott in foreign countries is being carried on at the initiative of German Jews who fled their homeland under Nazi persecution.

Reproducing several printed boycott appeals which appealed in foreign newspapers, the Deutsche Woche claimed that “this is the work of Jewish industrialists and financiers from Germany, upon whom we must keep a watchful eye.” The paper hinted that if the boycott continues the Jews still remaining in Germany will be made to pay a high price for it.
