Download PDF for this date

The State Prosecutor has begun an investigation into the case of a Jewish family named Ederle in the village of Bruchhausen who have been subjected to persistent persecution reportedly encouraged by the local priest. The Ederle children have continually suffered insults at school.

At the recent funeral in a nearby Jewish cemetery for Mr. Edorle, a convert to Judaism from Christianity who died recently, a man showed up carrying a swastika on a placard.
