Twenty-one Jews in the Buchenwald concentration camp were executed last Nov. 10 in reprisal for “the Semitic British warmongers’ insolence,” following the Royal Air Force raid on Munich on Nov. 9 during the celebration of the anniversary of the Nazi “beerhall putsch,” it was revealed today for the first time by a refugee who was in Buchenwald at the time and subsequently escaped from Germany.
