Download PDF for this date

The investigation started here against Nazi activities in South America has disclosed that Nazi agents planned to dynamite one of the largest Jewish temples in Buenos Aires and to murder a German general residing in this city and known for his anti-Nazi views.

The police today also established that Nazi agents had prepared a plan to set fire to many Argentine national banners on May 24 in order to provoke the reaction of Argentine nationalists against the Jews.

Further investigations into the Nazi activities in South America are now being conducted under strict secrecy, since it has been established that officials of a German bank in Buenos Aires are involved in the Nazi plot.
