Goering’s Paper Hits “lenient” Penalties for “rassenschande”

Download PDF for this date

The Essener National Zeitung, General Goering’s newspaper, today strongly condemned “lenient sentences” meted out to two defendants in a “race-defilement” trial.

The Essen Criminal Court jailed a 23-year-old Jewish boy to nine months and fined his “Aryan” sweetheart thirty marks.

“Such lenient sentences do not procure protection for German blood and honor,” the newspaper said.
