Say Beuthen Jews “molest Hakenkreuzler

October 25, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The situation throughout Upper Silesia and, particularly, here continues threatening as far as the Jews are concerned. The anti-Semites, taking their due from the German Party insist that Jews are in complete control of Beuthen, occupying the best residences and, organized under the very eyes of the police, maintain a well equipped and well-paid Jewish guard, which “molests” the Haken-kreuzler.

Basing themselves upon this incredable accusation, the German Party appeals to the military authorities to take the situation in hand before “the seething German national soul resorts to self-defense”.
