Berlin (Jul. 13)
The Rudolf Mosse Company, which since the Jewish publisher was ousted from the directorate in April has been operating under Nazi control as the “Rudolf Mosse Foundation, Ltd.,” last night announced its inability to pay its obligations. Payments were suspended and a petition for receivership was filed in court.
Rudolf Mosse’s was the biggest and most powerful publishing house in Germany until the Hitlerites came into power. The Berliner Tage-blatt, the company’s most important newspaper, was “coordinated” by the Nazis. Since coordination took place the paper lost thousands of Jewish readers and advertisements from hundreds of firms.
A statement was issued by the present managers of the paper saying that the financial troubles would not cause the paper to cease publication. It will appear, as usual, under Nazi management, in spite of the fact that the company hereafter publishing the Tageblatt will not carry Herr Mosse’s name.
