Holy Day Closing Gets Nazis Upset

Download PDF for this date

The Nazi paper “Westfaelische Laneszeitung” is first indignant about the cattle market opening having been postponed for one day, owing to Yom Kippur. The paper states that it asked the director of the municipal slaughter-house for information regarding this postponement and was told that next year a change would take place. The present calendar for cattle markets was compiled two years ago, but the new one will not take the Jewish holidays into consideration, the paper also told.

The same paper which succeeded in forcing Jewish department store advertising from Dortmund cinema screens, continues its campaign against these stores. Now it reprints part of the formerly leading Catholic paper Tremonia, featuring an advertisement by the firm Gebr. Kaufmann A. G. Dortmund. The paper attacks personally the publisher of the Tremonia, who today is still a member of the Dortmund Municipal Council, for accepting an advertisement from Jewish business houses.

In another issue the same paper maintains that, if those who still buy in Jewish stores were to show the necessary judgment, the Jewish problem in Germany would be solved very soon.
