January 19, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Reports arriving here from Munich convey the alarm felt there in connection with Adolph Hittler’s preparations to review Saturday 200,000 armed Bavarian Fascisti. The danger of massacres of Jews is plainly depicted in these reports, urging Jews abroad to intervene in an effort to avert a pogrom wave.

Liberal German newspapers confirm the prediction of a general uprising engineered by Hittler and his National Socialist followers, to establish the dictature or the Fascisti by Saturday.
