Demand for New Boycott Against Jews of Germany Appears in Berlin Papers

Download PDF for this date

Slogans openly calling for another Jewish boycott in Germany are reappearing in the Nazi press and once again newspapers here have begun to carry big headlines stating: “Whoever buys from a Jew is a traitor to the German cause.”

Another streamer declares: “Jews are Germany’s misfortune.”

A third banner reads: “Do not patronize Jewish doctors and Jewish lawyers!”

Simultaneously with the appearance of these headlines the Nazi press today carried the text of a leaflet which was printed in German and French with the heading: “French People Awake!” This leaflet allegedly is being distributed all through France, calling for Frenchmen to boycott Jews and refrain from buying any merchandise from Jewish stores.
