Cologne Nazis Digging Senwers While Jews Run City, British Correspondent Reports

Download PDF for this date

A 45-year-old former Jewish journalist, Friedrich Jacoby, has been appointed chief of prison guards in Cologne, the correspondent of the Sunday Dispatch reports today. A few weeks ago, a Jew, Ernest Winkler, was named police chief of the city.

The correspondent writes that “Jacoby is humanizing the prison in which so many of his faith were killed,” adding that “the Hazis of Cologne are digging sewers and trenches, while the Jews they baited are running the city.”

It was learned today that, at the last minute, Samuel S. Silverman, Laborite U.P. and a leader of the World Jewish Congress, was included in the Parliamentary delegation which flew from here to inspect the horror camps uncovered by the British and American armies in Germany.
