Download PDF for this date

Arnold Freymuth, distinguished German Jewish lawyer, and former member of the Reichstag, committed suicide together with his wife, Margaret, here today. He was 62 years old, and his wife 51. They are survived by two children.

Freymuth was melancholy ever since he was forced to flee from Germany after the Nazis had dismissed him from the presidency of the Court of Appeals in Charlottenburg, near Berlin.
