Download PDF for this date

A report in the Morning Post that Jewish shops in Berlin would be permitted to display the swastika flag for the duration of the Olympics was declared today to be without foundation. The Nuremberg laws forbid Jews to display the German national emblem. The ban will not be suspended even temporarily for the Olympics, informed sources said.
