Prussia Bans the Rond “black Hundred” Group

Download PDF for this date

The Czarist-Nazi organization, Rond, made up of former reactionary, anti-Semitic Russians, was officially declared illegal in Prussia today. One of the German states, Bavaria, had previously prohibited the activities of the Rond.

The members of the notorious Russian anti-Semitic organization, the Black Hundred, and other reactionary, monarchist elements now in exile in Germany, formed their own organization after the Nazis came to power and affiliated themselves with the Nazis with the avowed object of bringing Nazi blessings to Russia. The Soviet ambassador protested against their activities and the Bavarian authorities prohibited their activities and confiscated their property.
