many is now entering a period of evolution. This is obvious from the continued press campaign against the Jews which is now sweeping the country, including the plebiscite area of Upper Silesia where the discriminatory program of the Nazis against the Jews was to have been abandoned according to Germany’s promise to the Council of the League of Nations.

Signs forbidding the entrance of Jews appeared at the entrance of the municipal swimming pools and bathhouses in Gleiwitz, one of the principal cities of Upper Silesia.

A Nazi paper published in Gleiwitz, in an article inciting the populace to pogrom activities against the Jews, published under the exhoratory heading, “They Must Be Rooted Out!” calls on the Germans to “blot out the Jews from the face of the sun because the Jewish nation is the devil’s nation consisting of criminals and murderers.”

In Dortmund and other towns, the Nazi press features anti-Jewish cartoons and articles actually designed to endanger the lives of the local Jewish population by arousing feeling against the Jews.
