Storm troopers visit air-raid shelters in Frankfort-am-Main every night that an air-raid alarm is sounded there to check up check up on the Jews taking shelter and to see whether they are complying with the order to wear the Jewish bad on their outer garments, travellers from the German city reported here today.

The Jews in Frankfort, according to these reports, have now sewn the Jewish badges on their dressing-gowns and nightshirts to avoid arrest.
