Download PDF for this date

A secret Nazi terror organization, the “Werewolf” was discovered in Southern Czechoslovakia near the German border, by Czech gendarmes.

The members of this secret terrorist organization whose emblem is a variation of the Swastika, worn so that terrorists could identify each other, spent their time terrorizing the Jewish population and also watching the frontier for refugees from Germany.

Many Jews are believed to have fallen victims to the campaign carried on by the “Werewolf” including Dr. Lederer of Teplitz, Czechoslovakia, who died of a heart attack after receiving a threatening letter from the group.
