Download PDF for this date

A Nazi party under the name of Narodni Front was officially formed here today. It will pursue the same policies as the Nazis in Germany.

The new party has proclaimed anti-Semitism as a part of its program and has adopted the swastika as its party symbol. The party is headed by Professors Mares and Nicolu of the Czechoslovakian university. It will participate in the forthcoming national elections in the country.

The Czechoslovakian press complains today that the streets of Praha are flooded with anti-Semitic leaflets. “It is the first time that our Czechoslovakian doctors are invited from the streets of the city to engage in anti-Jewish actions imitating our neighbors,” the press comments today.
