Download PDF for this date

The German newspaper Ostdeutscher Beobachter reports that a synagogue in Poznan, Nazi Poland, is being converted into a swimming pool by the Nazi authorities. Three Stars of David recently were taken from the cupola of the synagogue for conversion into war materials. According to the newspaper, storm troopers who took the ornaments down had to be restrained from completely destroying the synagogue.
