Download PDF for this date

The constant growth of the National Socialist movement was again demonstrated yesterday when the Nazis made impressive gains in the municipal elections in Bremen, Luebeck and Bielefeld. Doubling their best previous vote in Bremen, the Nazis now have 32 of the 89 members of the municipal council as compared with only two before.

In Luebeck they won 7 seats of a total of 17 while in Bielefeld they polled 22,000 as compared with 16,000 in the last general elections.
