Jewish Circles Believe Renewed Nazi Terrorization Will Be Prevented by Present Regime

Download PDF for this date

The police department yesterday established beyond a measure of doubt that those responsible for the dynamiting of the Jewish agricultural colony of Gross Glasgow on August 17th are members of the Nazi party.

On August 30th, in the course of an interpellation on the bombing in the Jewish colonies, in the Prussian Diet, the Nazi deputies abused the State Attorney for conducting an investigation into the activities of Nazis arrested in connection with the dynamiting.

The Nazi deputies then repudiated responsibility for the outrage and suggested that dismissed workmen were in all probability the perpetrators. The Nazis arrested included the leader of the Storm Troops, Reinhard, four members of the Storm Troops and a husband and wife named Steiner. All deny the crime. The Social Democratic paper, “Abend,” commenting on this disclosure discusses the lack of conscience of the Nazis and emphasizes the importance of taking measures to suppress any continuation of the bombing terror.

Last night the windows of a grocery store of a Jew, Aron, in Frobenstrasse, were broken. Nazis, according to the Communist press, are responsible, although the perpetrators have thus far not been apprehended.

In Jewish circles there is a belief that renewed terrorization is not likely to be tolerated by the present regime. This particularly in view of the fact that Minister of Interior Wilhelm von Gayl yesterday let it be known that new elections will be held within the sixty day period set by the constitution if order is maintained. He warned the Nazis, however, that if disturbances are renewed, the elections will be postponed.
