German Jewry is now facing one of the most severe crises in its history.

Reports from Munich state that the anti-Semitic agitation has now reached an unprecedented climax. Posters are to be seen throughout the city condemning Jews and urging violence on them. The propaganda is continuous.

Dr. Van Kaar, the new military dictator, is himself no friend of the Jews. In the event, however, the present regime falls and Hitler succeeds to power, it is taken for granted that the Jews of Germany will be visited by the most severe persecution in the history of the country.
