Danzig Nazis Picket Shops

Download PDF for this date

Non-uniformed Nazis today picketed Jewish stores in the business section of the city, calling upon the population to boycott the Jewish firms and to patronize “Aryan” firms only.

Yellow slips were handed out by the pickets in front of the Jewish stores to all customers of “Aryan” appearance. The slips contained a warning against the failure to patronize “Brothers of German Blood.”

The windows of numerous Jewish stores were defaced last night by hooligans. The authorities are apathetic to the activities of the Nazis.
