Hamburg Jewish Paper Confiscated by Nazis

Download PDF for this date

Nazi authorities yesterday ordered confiscation of the Israelitische Familienblatt. Although no reasons were assigned for the action, it is believed due an editorial commenting on the six anti-Jewish “commandments” issued by Hitler’s deputy Rudolf Hess. The paper also criticizes a government order forbidding Jewish youth organizations from marching and from wearing distinctive uniforms.
