Notices were displayed today outside the Wannsee Lake, on the outskirts of Berlin, prohibiting Jews from entering. The order was signed by State Commissar Klein. According to explanations advanced by the authorities, the order was due to the number of complaints received lately from Aryans objecting to “Jews swarming all over the place.”
