Streicher to Speak in Berlin

Download PDF for this date

German Jews expected the worst today as a result of the announcement broadcast throughout Germany that Julius Streicher, Nazidom’s Number One anti-Semite, has been invited for the first time to deliver an address in Berlin on the Jewish question. He is scheduled to speak on August 15 at the Sportspalast which has a seating capacity of 15,000.

Streicher’s appearance in Berlin is taken as an augury of even stormier days for Jews throughout Germany and also here in the capital.

Addressing a congress in Nuremburg of German youth from abroad, including also a delegation from America, Julius Streicher declared “Germany will not rest until the Jews are exterminated.”

Hundreds of uniformed storm troopers last night invaded the homes of Jews in Tiedersdorf, a resort near Berlin, shouting “Jews get out!”

Today the Nazi troopers ordered the Jews to leave the spa within twenty-four hours.

Intervention of the local non-Jewish population, including the mayor of Riedersdorf, with the Nazi authorities to stay the execution of this order proved futile. Fifteen Jewish families of Riedersdorf already arrived in Berlin today.

Berlin authorities today issued an order for the immediate closing of all Jewish ice-cream parlors, save those owned by Jewish citizens of foreign countries.

Following the example set by Berlin, Munich authorities today announced that Jews from the provinces are not permitted to move to Munich, and that all Jewish newcomers will be fined and sent out of the city.

Sixty-one more Jews were today deprived of their citizenship in Chemnitz.

In Parchim, Mecklenburg, the majority of the Jewish population which was arrested on Wednesday, were released today on condition that the Jewish merchants in the town do not reopen their stores.

It was also revealed for the first time today that the Jewish population of the town was placed under arrest because an “Aryan” maid working in a Jewish house allegedly insulted two storm troopers who attempted to flirt with her.

In numerous cities school children have been mobilized to picket before Jewish jobs.

In Reinikendorf a Jewish boy, Aaron Arendt, was sentenced to one year and his brother Walter to ten months in prison, for allegedly insulting Nazi authorities who forbade them to ride their velocipedes on the main street.
