The railway accident on the Berlin-Cologne line, when in express train was wrecked and 22 passengers killed, is still being employed by anti-Semitic leaders as a means of strengthening their propaganda.
Posters placarded throughout the city by anti-Semitic organizations state that the arrested man. Schlesinger, who is held responsible for the accident, is a Jew. As a contradiction to this assertion, an official statement made known today establishes the fact that Schlesinger was born a Catholic, that he is a member of the Voelkische organization and that last year he was sentenced to seven days in jail for distributing pogrom literature.
