November 12, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The so-called Nationalist revolution in Bavaria which was ended so abruptly, was directed “simply and solely against the Jewish Government of Berlin”, according to the Fascist leader Hitler’s chief officer, who addressed the crowd assembled outside the brewery house where the short-lived putch was planned. Following the reading of the insurrectionary proclamation, Hitler’s chief of staff explained that what was aimed by the Fascisti revolution was the destruction of the “Jewish Government”.

It is understood that several anti-Jewish decrees had been prepared by the Hitlerists and that if not for its miscarriage the “revolution” would have witnessed unprecedented acts of repression against the Jewish citizens of Germany.
