Communists Break Up Nazi Milwaukee Rally, Police Arrest Three

Download PDF for this date

Nazis drew the first opposition offered here by Communists when more than 200 people broke up a meeting of the Friends of New Germany.

Charles Schoenherr of Chicago, Nazi agitator, had entered upon a scotching denunciation of Communists and Jews before the Nazi assemblage, when Communists outside the hall joined in a clamor against Hitler and his American sympathizers.

Even in numbers, the Reds and Brownshirts made fur fly before police intervened, arresting three of the Communists.
