Download PDF for this date

In an effort to drive the Jews out of the township, local Nazis invaded the synagogue in Honnef, in the Rhineland, and desecrated the building.

The vandals tore up all the prayer books in the synagogue and stole all the money in the collection boxes there, which was intended for religious purposes.
