November 28, 1933
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Six persons were arraigned today in the Municipal Court for participating in the riot Sunday afternoon which was caused by an address delivered in defense of the Hitler government by a German pedagogue.

The rioting, in which it is estimated 5,000 persons engaged, ended in a clash between the police and the mob. A number of persons were injured.

Professor Friedrich Schoenemann, of the University of Berlin, who spoke on “Why I Believe in the Hitler government”, was the object of the protest. In his address the speaker declared that anti-Jewish persecutions are the “natural” result of the revolution, and he lauded Hitler as the unifier of the German people.
