Reich Plans to Slay 500, Paper Says

Download PDF for this date

Prominent Jews are included in a list of 500 Germans marked for execution in the Reich immediately after Hitler’s “election” as Reich President and Reich Chancellor, the London Daily Herald will say tomorrow.

In a front-page article, the Herald will charge the existence of a list of people, considered hostile to Hitler’s rule, who have been marked for slaughter after Sunday’s plebiscite gives Hitler his expected vote of confidence.

In an accompanying editorial the Herald will warn of this plan and declare that, according to reports from reliable sources, the accusation is being made against the Jews on the proscribed list that they are responsible for the boycott resulting in Germany’s economic collapse.
