Representative Body Protests Streicher ‘ritual’ Libel

Download PDF for this date

The All German Jewish Representative Body, central German Jewish organization, today protested officially to the Nazi government against the attempt made by Julius Streicher in his anti-Semitic weekly, Der Stuermer, to renew accusations of ritual murders against the Jews.

The current issue of Der Stuermer was suppressed yesterday in Breslau for raking up an old murder case involving a sadistic, sexual crime and featuring it under the heading of “Ritual Murder in Breslau.” Breslau police termed the story “nonsense.”
