North Berlin Shops Bar Sales to Jews

The anti-Semitic campaign has taken a particularly oppressive turn in the Weissensee district in north Berlin where every shop is plastered with signs reading, “Aryan Shops Will No Longer Sell to Jews.”

The few remaining Jewish shops in the district are for the most part closed since the disorders, consequently Jewish residents must go half a mile to buy bread or such common medicaments as aspirin. According to the shopkeepers, the signs were put up by Storm Troopers and members of the Nazi Labor front, who warned the merchants against removing them.

Claims presented by Jews for damages during the disorders are being honored by insurance companies, many of which, however, are cancelling policies held by Jews, particularly on plate glass windows.
