Anti-semitic Leaflets Disseminated in Mailboxes in Large Ruhr City

Download PDF for this date

Leaflets bearing anti-Semitic attacks on Jews and on the West German trade union movement were found today in Herne, a large city in the Ruhr, mostly in mailboxes.

One of the slogans was “The Jewish race lies and agitates everywhere.” Another declared that the trade union movement was “a Jewish business” and demanded that “all Jews be turned out of our union.” The present chairman of the movement is a Jew, Ludwig Rosenberg.
