Pro-nazi and and Anti-semitic Rallies Held in Germany; Ex-nazis Active

Anti-Semitic and Nazi songs were sung last night at a political meeting in a suburb of Hanover and crowds booed and cursed the policemen who dispersed it, the New York Times reported today in a cable from Bonn. The cable also reported that Wilhelm Schopmann, the last leader of Hitler’s brown-shirted Storm Troopers, the S.A., is a candidate of the “Refugee party” in the communal elections in Lower Saxony.

“The appearance of Herr Schopmann and lesser Nazis on the party lists for local councils, the increased political activity of the neo-Nazis and the series of pro-Nazi and anti-Semitic political rallies emphasize that neo-fascism is virulent in Lower Saxony, despite the voluntary dissolution of the Socialist Reich party and its subsequent banning by the Federal Constitutional Court last Thursday,” the report emphasized.
