German Trade Paper Blasts Polish Jews As Sharpers

Download PDF for this date

“How can you buy from a Polish Jew#” is the question posed in the current issue of the trade paper, Komet, by Erich Meyer head of the state organization of market-stall proprietors. Meyer objected to competition from some of the Jewish DP’s in the Foehrenwald camp who have been touring the fairs in south Bavaria and selling their wares there.

“The arm of the law does not take corrective action when an invasion of aliens from the Foehrenwald camp makes its way into a fair with the intention of peddling goods like sharpers,” he complained.
