Jewish Lad Attacked by Saarbrucken Nazis

Download PDF for this date

Uniformed Nazis today violently attacked a Jewish boy ten years old at Saarbrucken (Sarrebruck) in the Saar plebiscite area, according to reports received here. Prompt police intervention saved the life of the lad and dispersed the hoodlum band.

The population of Saarbrucken, perturbed by the recent outbreak of terroristic activities on the part of the Nazis, was reported as being in a high state of excitement following this wanton attack. Hitlerist outbreaks are multiplying in the city despite police efforts to maintain peace and order and protect the non-Nazi population.
