The methods of the American Ku Klux Klan have been adopted by the anti-Semitic organizations in Germany if indications which came to light in Cologne reveal the situation.

A number of prominent Jewish citizens of Cologne received numerous anonymous letters during the last few weeks in which they are addressed as follows:
