Cleanse Frankfurt of Jews, Its Mayor Says at Rally

Download PDF for this date

The time has come to cleanse Frankfurt of Jews, the lord mayor of the city, Dr. Krebs, declared at a meeting there. “The Jews have converted our old Kaiser city into a new Jerusalem on a Frankish Jordan,” he declared. “For the last fourteen years, these Jews have taken our old, famous Frankfurt and have made an effort to rule here with their swindling spirit. The times, however, have now changed, and Frankfurt, I hope, will no longer be called a Jewish city.”
