Nazi March in Breslau Organised to Irive Jews to Palestine Becomes Riot but Jews Unaffected: Republi

The Nazis in Breslau called a march and demonstration for to-day in order to proclaim “Jews! Get ready to go to Palestine !”. Big posters were put up in the streets bearing this slogan, and a great deal of anxiety was caused among the Jewish population of Breslau, numbering 23,240 out of the total population of 610,000.

The Republicans of Breslau declared that they would stop the Nazi march and anti-Jewish incitement, and the police, in order to avoid a clash, prohibited the Nazi march. Nevertheless, the Nazis held their procession, and serious fighting has occurred between them and the Republicans, in which many on both sides have been injured. No Jews, however, have been affected.

There is a growing civil war feeling throughout the country, between the Nazis on the one side and the powerful Republicans and Socialist forces, of the Reichsbanner and the Socialist Democratic Party on the other, and serious clashes have taken place in many places.

The police chief of Breslau has appealed to the citizens to avoid appearing in the streets, because the police cannot be responsible for the safety of individuals who venture out.

The Republicans are in many places taking the offensive now against the Hitlerists. To-day, the Reichsbanner telegraphed to President Hindenburg demanding that he should put down the Nazi incitement and pogromist agitation.

Serious fighting between Nazi students and Republican students has broken out at Frankfurt University compelling the University authorities to close down the University. Here, too, no Jewish casualties have occurred.
