First Pogrom On. German Soil at Nuernberg

November 5, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The first actual pogrom on German soil occurred in Nuernberg yesterday when an infuriated mob attacked Jewish residents, fatally wounding four well-known citizens of the Jewish faith. Shots owned by Jews were plundered to an extent which makes it difficult to estimate the damages.

Panic among the Jews continues as placards and circulars are still in evidence calling on the population to “strike down the Jews like dogs”.

The town council met in extraordinary session to protest to the authorities for having failed to take precautions to avert the pogrom which, in the present excitement, was not to be unexpected.
