Nazi Youths Pledge Hate of Jews

day fined a German farmer for trading with Jews and for slandering in a private letter one who preached anti-Semitism.

“Whoever trades with Jews is not a German,” the magistrate ruled.

A Jewish grain dealer, Leopold Bergheim, and his son Werner, were put on trial today for high treason in Sagan, in the Prussian part of Silesia, on charges that Werner made anti-German speeches in a Jewish club in Memel during his stay there.

Basing these charges on reports of Nazi agents in Memel, the father of the accused is also held responsible for the alleged anti-German speech of his son, who, according to the charges, also called for the boycott of German goods in Memel.

Local police claim to have discovered anti-Nazi literature in the home of the Bergheims. Also that they have established that young Bergheim maintained connections with German political emigres abroad.
