Many in Prague will have to pay dearly for their anti-Semitism. Lately the Hakenkreuslers had become addicted to the fad of cutting the Swastika sign (emblem of the anti-Semites) into their coins. The government has now announced that all coins bearing to Swastika emblem will lose their currency. As a result, many of the anti-Semites are now possessed of money of value equivalent to their speeches.
