Hess Warns Nazis Against Molesting Foreigners

Download PDF for this date

An order warning all Nazis against molesting foreigners who do not give the Nazi salute when the Nazi flag is borne by was issued yesterday by Rudolf Hess, assistant to Hitler. The order was issued after a number of incidents occurred in which Americans and other foreigners, particularly Jewish-looking American citizens, were assaulted by Nazi hooligans.

The order issued by Hess states that these attacks complicate Germany’s relations with foreign countries, but insists that Communist and Socialist agents have been the provocators, stirring up storm troopers to make these attacks. In the future all Nazis who insult foreigners will be severely punished and expelled from the Nazi party.
