Denmark Bans Play That Lampoons Hitler

Download PDF for this date

A satiric review lampooning Hitler and his regime in Germany, which was to have been performed at the Royal Theater here, was today banned by the government of Denmark.

The Socialist Minister of Education stated that the reason for banning production of the review is that it attacked the head of a neighboring friendly State.
