Danzig Jews Barricade Homes, Scores Flee As Terrorism is Renewed

JEWS BARRICADED THEIR HOMES TONIGHT AND SCORES FLED FROM THE CITY AS UNIFORMED AND NON-UNIFORMED NAZIS RENEWED THE TERRORISM WHICH HAD CAUSED INJURIES TO 18 AND AN ESTIMATED $20,000 DAMAGE OVER THE WEEKEND.

STORM TROOPERS ATTACKED AND PILLAGED JEWISH SHOPS, BREAKING WINDOWS OF STORES AND HOUSES. MANY JEWS, IN FLEEING, ABANDONED THEIR PROPERTY AND BUSINESSES.

A NUMBER OF JEWS IN NEARBY ZOPPOT AND OLIVA ALSO FLED AS THE NAZIS ANNOUNCED THEY WOULD GO THERE TOMORROW TO “CLEANSE” THESE LOCALITIES OF JEWS. NAZIS DESTROYED A JEWISH PORCELAIN FACTORY AT ZOPPOT.

THE NEW DISORDERS BROKE OUT SHORTLY AFTER NAZI DISTRICT LEADER ALBERT FORSTER HAD CONDEMNED THE DISORDERS, PROMISING TO SOLVE THE “JEWISH PROBLEM” BY LEGISLATION, AND THE NATIONALIST SOCIALIST AUTHORITIES HERE HAD ISSUED A COMMUNIQUE DISCLAIMING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE TERRORISM.

IN THE COMMUNIQUE, THE NAZIS PROMISED TO PUNISH PERSONS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TERRORISM. SIXTY PERSONS WERE UNDER ARREST, INCLUDING, THE NAZIS CLAIMED, POLISH CITIZENS.

LESS THAN 5,000 JEWS RESIDE IN THE FREE CITY, AS AGAINST 10,000 IN 1929.
