Poland Bans ‘hatred’ for Insult to Hitler

Download PDF for this date

In line with Poland’s pro-German policy, adopted as a result of the trade agreement between Poland and Germany, the Polish authorities today confiscated all copies of “Hatred,” the new novel by Heinrich Mann.

The novel by the eminent German author, now a refugee from Nazi Germany, was confiscated for alleged insults to Hitler.
