Nazis Seize Property of Goldmann

Download PDF for this date

The citizenship of Dr. Nahum Goldmann, Zionist leader and president of the Committee of Jewish Delegations in Paris, was revoked here today by the Nazi authorities and his property confiscated because of his anti-German activities abroad.

Thirty-eight Jews and “non-Aryans” were yesterday deprived of their citizenship by order of the Ministry of the Interior. They included Victor Schiff, formerly Berlin correspondent of the London Daily Herald; Erika Mann, daughter of Thomas Mann, and Dr. Rudolf Hilferding, former German Minister of Finance, who is of Jewish descent.


Police authorities today gave permission to the Stuermer to put up one of its sales-stands with anti-Semitic posters near the synagogue on the Lindenstrasse here.

The Westdeutscher Beobachter, the central organ of the National Socialist Party in the Rhine and Cologne districts, came out with the allegation that the Jews are smashing their own windows in order to supply material for anti-German propaganda.

“The people who have been arrested in Munich for anti-Jewish terrorism are the tools of the Jews, acting on the orders of the Jews, for the purpose of discrediting National Socialism,” the paper writes. “When the ringleaders of the Munich disturbances were looked at more closely, it was found that they were enemies of the State.”

The paper warns that “the National Socialist movement will fight vigorously against the criminal machinations of the Jews.” It asserts that there is no difference of opinion whatsoever among all authoritative leaders of the State as to how the Jews should be treated in Germany.
