Widespread agitation against foreigners and their languages in Kattowitz, Silesia, is reported by the Wolf Agency, a Germany press service.

“Wolf” reports further that nationalists removed all signs in foreign languages, smashing window-panes where they could not otherwise remove or obliterate the lettering.

“Down with the German Jews”, is the text of a poster prominently disploayed throughout the city, the report continues.
