Nazi Meeting Prohibited by Latvian Official

Download PDF for this date

The Latvian Minister of the Interior yesterday prohibited a meeting of the Latvian Nazis, who had emerged with inciting slogans against the Jews. Recently the Latvian Nazis had asked for a referendum to deprive the Jews of all the rights they now enjoy in Latvia. However, the move fell through.

The all-Latvian conference of Jewish women yesterday proposed an anti-German boycott and threatened social ostracism for Jews breaking the boycott or sending their children to German schools.
