If Pogrommed, Jews Must Pay Damages

Download PDF for this date

In renting an appartment or house in Munich, Jews are required to sign an agreement that in the event of a pogrom they will make good all damage to property occupied by them, says a Munich report.

Guarantees required of Jewish tenants cover the furniture and fixtures in the house they lease. No provision is made for recovery of damage to the property of the Jewish tenants in case of pogroms.
