Bathers on Beach Near Danzig Attacked by Uniformed Nazis

Download PDF for this date

Uniformed Nazi rowdies today compelled Jewish bathers to leave the beaches at a seaside resort near Danzig.

Singing anti-Jewish songs, the Nazis marched to the resort in groups and began to attack Jewish vacationists. This is the first time that the Nazis have openly attacked Jews at the Danzig beaches.

The official organ of the Nazi-controlled Danzig Senate, the Danziger Verposten, came out today with an anti-Semitic article accusing the Jews of Danzig of being responsible for the present financial crisis in the Free City. The Danziger Verposten, although it is a government organ, is outspokenly anti-Jewish.

An official complaint was lodged today with the Danzig court against the Nazi administration for deporting Theodor Loewy, the correspondent of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, from Danzig.
