German Neo-nazi Assails Mendes-france at Brownshirt Meeting

Download PDF for this date

An attack on French Premier Pierre Mendes-France as a Jew was made today by Major H, Krueger, chairman of the neo-Nazi German Reich Party for the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Addressing a meeting at nearby Duisberg on the question of a United States of Europe, Maj. Krueger told his brownshirted audience that “we do not want to be ruled by the Jew Mendes-France.” The audience consisted of members of the “Reich Youth” group, whose brown shirts are adorned with belts, straps and scarves like those of the Hitler Youth formations.

The Bonn Government recently dropped efforts to ban the German Reich Party alleging there was insufficient evidence of the anti-democratic character of the party’s members.
