Swiss Nazis Disrupt Show by Refugees

Members of the anti-Semitic National Front Organization, which is the Nazi organization in Switzerland, disrupted a performance here of the “Beggars’ Opera,” given by German-Jewish refugees who have been deprived of their citizenship in Germany.

Police were attacked and stoned by the Nazis when an effort was made to restore order. The police were compelled to use truncheons. Twelve of the Nazis were arrested, but were later released.
