Temporary Curb on Gustloff Case Comment Imposed on Nazi Press

Download PDF for this date

Das Schwarze Korps, organ of Hitler’s blackshirted elite guards, revealed today that the Nazi press has been instructed to comment reservedly on the Gustloff murder case until David Frankfurter, Jewish medical student, has been tried in Chur, Switzerland, for the assassination of the Nazi leader last February.

The paper asserted that the Nazis would be unable to maintain their restraint if “Jewish provocations” continued. The trial of Frankfurter for the assassination of Gustloff in a hotel in Davos, Switzerland, is scheduled to open in the middle of November.
