Download PDF for this date

The Sunday Chronicle reported today Labor Minister Ernest brown would disclose in commons next Thursday details of the German Government’s anti-Jewish campaign in England and other countries. The newspaper declared Germans in England had been ordered to do all in their power to persecute Jews. German firms doing business in England, the Chronicle said, have been instructed to dismiss all Jewish employs by the New Year. Names of the dismissed Jews will be sent to the Reichsbund, Nazi overseas organization here, which will compile a blacklist preventing their re-employment. The ban includes Jews of every nationality and German firms reportedly have also been ordered not to enter into further contracts with Jewish concerns.

At the same time, the newspaper said, German banks are trying to find out what money has been brought here by refugees, the information being turned over to the Gestapo who thereupon visit relatives in Germany and warn them they will be sent to concentration camp unless the money is sent back to pay the $400,000,000 “fine” Assessed against German Jewry in reprisal for the assassination of a German Embassy official in Paris last month.
