Download PDF for this date

A former Nazi Party leader in Darmstadt, Hermann Kornenberger, has been sentenced to 18 months imprisonment by a German court in Darmstadt for his part in leading attacks on Jews in the vicinity of that city during the night of Nov. 9-10, 1938.

From Frankfurt it was reported today that Hans Schoppan, one-time Hitler youth leader, had been sentenced to one year in jail for a similar offense on the same night in the village of Usingen. Nazi gangs throughout Germany fell on Jews and beat them and destroyed their property on the night of Nov. 9-10 in revenge for the assassination of a Nazi diplomat in Paris by a Jew.
