Reich Town Forbids Jews to Walk on Hitlerplatz

Download PDF for this date

The municipality of Rothenberg which recently renamed its principal square Hitlerplatz, has decided that no Jew may set foot in the square that bears the sacred name of Hitler.

Since streets named for Hitler now exist in every German town with even one street, the German press is considering whether other municipalities will follow this example.
