Armed Nazis Attack Munich Rabbi, Wife

Download PDF for this date

The Times in a special dispatch from Munich, reports that two armed Nazis forced entrance into the home of Rabbi Ehrentreu, Sunday night, and demanded to see him. The rabbi, in an adjoining room, hearing their voices, telephoned the police for aid. Meanwhile, the pair of hoodlums burst into the room, and one of them struck the rabbi a violent blow with a paper cutter. The rabbi, bleeding profusely from a deep gash in his face, succeeded in raising and alarm. The other assailant struck the rabbi’s wife with a chair. Both escaped before the arrival of police.
