An appeal signed by ex-Chancellor Fehrenbach, ex-Ministers Gottheim, Fischer and Suedakun and others representing the Association for the Combatting of Anti-Semitism in the Reich deplores the recent pogrom in Berlin whereby the “blackest page in German history” was written. “The despairing masses misled by the conscienceless anti-Semite Hitler attacked our Jewish fellow-citizens, looted Jewish shops, thus writing down the “blackest page in German history”, says the appeal. “To continue further on this road would mean that Germany is lost. German honor and its future make it imperative for us to combat the blind Jewish agitation which is besmirging the German name.”
