New Nec-nazi Party Formed in Germany; Members Smeared Swastikas

Download PDF for this date

A new neo-Nazi party was founded, at a convention at Dortmund, yesterday. The new group, calling itself the German Freedom Party, was organized by leading members of the German Reichspartei.

Two members of that party were convicted nearly two years ago of having begun the swastika-smearing plague that swept this country and other parts of the world, after they had painted the Nazi symbol on the walls of the Cologne synagogue on Christmas Eve, 1959.
