Leipzig Fair Hard Hit, Trade Drop ‘alarming’

Download PDF for this date

Administrative officials of the Leipzig Fair, Germany’s largest annual trade fair, announced today that the results of the event were “very unsatisfactory” and that “foreign orders fell off alarmingly.”

Since the Nazis came into power the fair, most popular market of its kind, Germany has fallen into disfavor not only with the Jews who have joined the anti-German boycott but also with non-Jews who because of troubled conditions in Germany have refused to attend.
