Tear gas bombs were thrown into department stores owned by Jews by the Nazis on Saturday, compelling the stores to close.

The bombs are part of the boycott terrorization tactics pursued by the Nazis in their effort to prevent the Jews from benefiting by the Christmas trade.

Last week the police, acting under instructions from the attorney-general, confiscated a Nazi anti-Jewish boycott appeal.
