Download PDF for this date

More than 8,000 persons participated in an anti-Hitler meeting conducted here last night.

The meeting was arranged jointly by all parties to protest against the anti-Jewish and anti-Catholic oppression of the Nazi regime in Germany. Prof. Georg Bernhard, former editor of the Vossische Zeitung in Berlin, and at present editor of the Pariser Tageblatt, addressed the meeting.

Prof. Bernhard told of the excesses now being perpetrated by the Nazis against Jews, Catholics and Protestants. He was enthusiastically hailed by the large audience. Other speakers included Bernard Lecache, noted French-Jewish writer; Abbe Lambert, the Mayor of Oran, and Deputy Pery. A strong anti-Hitler resolution was adopted by the meeting.

The local pro-Hitler newspaper, La Presse, today discontinued publication after appearing for one year.
