Nazi Press Launches New Anti-semitic Campaign

Download PDF for this date

Violent anti-Jewish articles and insulting pictures were published today in the official organ of the Black Corps, special political police, and Der Samann, Nazi weekly.

Both publications are full of libelous and malicious insults. The Black Corps organ demands that all Jewish manuscripts, including the Hebrew Bible, be removed from German museums “because they are Jewish propaganda.”

The honorary cross instituted by the late Reich President von Hindenburg for war participants will no longer be awarded to Jews, it was announced here today.

The German press reports that a Jewish war veteran named Giesen “had the audacity to apply for a war cross.” The application, of course, was rejected.

Officials and employes in municipal institutions in Orweiler, Dingen district, were today ordered to maintain no contacts with Jews.

Jews in the town were ordered not to park their automobiles on city streets.

Similar orders are being issued in numerous other cities throughout the country.
