U.S. Army Quells Anti-semitic Demonstration in Movie in Bavarian Town

U.S. Army troops were called in to quell an anti-Semitic disturbance which broke out in a movie in Garmish-Partenkirchen, south of here in the Bavarian Alps, the German press reports today.

The demonstration occurred during a newsreel scene showing the recent dedication of a new synagogue in Munich. When the newsreel commentator stated that 6,000,000 Jews had been murdered by the Nazis, an unidentified member of the audience shouted: “That was far too little, there are still too many Jews.”
