Download PDF for this date

A synagogue in West Berlin was found smeared with swastikas, and desecrated with Nazi slogans, according to press dispatches received here today. The dispatches stated that the stickers carrying the anti-Semitic slogans were imprinted with the name of the National Socialist Party of England.

The National Socialist movement in England, under the leadership of Colin Jordan, an ex-school teacher jailed for neo Nazi activities, has boasted publicly that it is providing anti-Semitic materials to colleagues in Germany.
