Danzig Sues Jewish Paper for Anti-nazi Article

March 3, 1936
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The authorities have instituted an action, it was disclosed today, against the Jewish newspaper, Danziger Echo, for an anti-Nazi article. The suit is regarded here as a violation of the promises given by Dr. Arthur Greiser, president of the Danzig Senate, to the League of Nations Council in Geneva that rights of minority newspapers would be respected.

The action against the newspaper is based on an article printed last December reviewing the attitude of British churchmen to persecution of Jews in Germany in connection with criticism of the Nazis voiced by the Church Assembly of the Church of England.
