New Editor of Pariser Tageblatt Stabbed

Richard Lewinson, new editor of the Pariser Tageblatt, German emigre paper which is alleged to have been taken over by the German Embassy, was beaten up and stabbed by unknown persons late night as he was leaving the paper’s printing plant, it was made known today. Lewinson writes under the pen name of Morus.

The Tageblatt failed to appear today, as a result of a strike by printers in sympathy with the paper’s editorial staff which resigned in a body when they learned of the action of the proprietor, Vladimir Poliakov, in selling out to the Nazis.

Poliakov, who denies the charges of his former staff, dismissed Dr. Georg Bernhard, editor and founder of the paper, who is now in the United States on a speaking tour. The emigre journalists have organized a new paper, known as the Pariser Tageszeitung, of which Dr. Bernhard is to take charge on his return.
