Download PDF for this date

Einar Aaberg, notorious Swedish anti-Semite, was again fined 100 Kroner today for displaying an anti-Jewish sandwich-board on the central square of the Swedish capital, and for insulting the police who removed it.

In court, Aaberg declared that he felt that he had committed no offense, “since the signs were offensive to Jews only.” The prosecuting attorney drew his attention to the fact that “in Sweden the Jews have the same rights as other Swedish citizens.”
