Nazi Sheet Sneers at Kosher Food on Ships

Download PDF for this date

The authority under which German steamers are providing kosher food for Jewish passengers was questioned today by Der Stuermer, Nazi daily published in Nuremberg by Julius Streicher. The shechita prohibition on kosher meat slaughtering applies to all German enterprises, it is pointed out.

Referring to the direct German-Palestine line which has been established here for Jewish refugees, Der Stuermer expresses the hope that the steamer either sink or the Arabs offer suitable welcome to the refugees.

The attack caused a great deal of embarrassment among shipping circles. The South Hamburg American Line is hoping that the new governmental policy not to publish information regarding attacks on the Jews for fear of foreign reprisals, will prevent spread of this latest intelligence in foreign countries.
