Nazi Fair Mob Forces Jews to Quit Stalls

Download PDF for this date

Shouting that Jewish traders were undesirable and unwanted, a Nazi mob descended upon the fair grounds at Regensburg and forced Jewish merchants exhibiting their wares there to abandon their stalls.

Heretofore the general policy has been to exclude Jewish exhibitors from the fair altogether or to assign them to a special section of the market, where they would not interfere with the Nazi traders.

The present outbreak is apparently an outcome of the recently renewed campaign in the provincial press against Jewish traders, as was the ban on Jewish cattle dealers at the Husum fair last Saturday.

The Husum fair is the most important German cattle show.
