Download PDF for this date

Three youths, one of them a notorious Swedish Nazi, have been charged with “provocative behavior” and will be arraigned in court for attacking a Jewish refugee last Sunday, it is reported today in the Nya Dagligt Allehanda.

The refugee, whose name is not given, was seated in a restaurant when he was assaulted by the three youths. He knocked down two of them and the other one fled. When the victims left the restaurant, however, they threw themselves upon him again and were arrested. One of the three had previously caused a disturbance when selling the Nazis party organ in the streets.
