Download PDF for this date

The general public became aware of it today when the Nazi co-ordinated press announced that Jewish speculation had deprived the German housewife of the all-important onion, and advised her to wait patiently for the new crop. Jews, having corned the onion market, are asking four times the normal price, the newspapers asserted.
