Nazi Farm Hands Balk at Working for Jews

Download PDF for this date

The Fraenkische Tageszeitung, today carried a report from Roekingen stating that agricultural laborers there are refusing to work for Jewish farmers. As a result the Jewish farmers are unable to take in their harvest and their crops are endangered.

“Let the dirty Jews take rakes and pitchforks themselves,” the anti-Semitic laborers are quoted as saying. “Let them learn what it means to work in the fields under a broiling sun. This may make them go back to their other promised land.”
