Czech Town Names Jewish Councillor to Avoid Henleinist

The town of Duerrmaul, near Marienbad, which has only 26 Jewish voters, elected a Jewish Party candidate for the Municipal Council in Sunday’s elections, it was revealed today. The non-Jews apparently voted for the Jew rather than support Konrad Henlein’s Sudeten Party candidate. No other list was presented. Five other Jewish Party candidates were elected in Sunday’s balloting, three in Teplitz-Schoenau and two in Bratislava.
