Danzig to Deport Editor of Jewish Weekly

The Danzig authorities today ordered deportation within eight days of Paul Berman, editor of the Jewish weekly, Danziger Echo, in lieu of a four months’ prison term for writing two anti-Nazi articles.

Berman, a Polish citizen, was released following intervention of Dr. Casimir Papee, Polish High Commissioner for Danzig. In one article Berman charged that Reichsfuehrer Hitler aimed at mass murder of half a million Jews. In the other, he stated that Reich Air Minister Hermann Goering had received “another diploma” from a lunatic asylum.
