Indictment of Bund Group Sought in New Jersey

Download PDF for this date

Prosecutor Charles Downing went before a Sussex County Grand Jury today to ask the indictment of the German-American Bund Auxiliary of New Jersey and its directors, operators of Camp Nordland, a few miles from here.

The indictment will be sought on the grounds that the New Jersey Bund leaders were guilty of stirring up religious and racial hatred and violating the law which makes it a crime for proprietors or directors of “a hall, camp or meeting place” to permit attacks against any religion. Three of the Bundists, Wilhelm Kunze, August Klapprott and Mathias Kohler, were arrested on July 4 on charges of inciting racial and religious hatred.
