Jews Deported from Bavaria by Hundreds

October 29, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Two hundred Jewish families have already been expelled from Bavaria and as many are awaiting deportation, by order of Dictator Von Kahr on the ground of their inability to establish the right of domicle. Among those expelled from Bavaria are many old residents. including Jews who, while not subjects of the Bavarian State, are citizens of the Reich. There are also many Jews who though “aliens”, have seen service during the War in the Bavarian regiments. A number of East-European Jews from Austria are also among the evicted.

The houses owned by the deportees have been requisitioned for the alleged purpose of housing the refugees from the Ruhr district, without, however, any provision being made for the housing of the expelled in districts outside of Bavaria.

Bavarian Jewry is in the throes of an unspeakable panic. Many heads of Jewish families, feeling their residence threatened, have offered to the authorities to leave Bavarian territory voluntarily if any are permitted to change their residence for some other German provincd.

The Voelkishe Beabachter, organ of Adolph Hitler, disregarding the Jews’ plea, continues the publication of the names of Jews not yet expelled, demanding the confiscation of their property as well as of those already deported.

That Dictator von Kahr will yield to Hitler’s demands is a foregone conclusion, since Hitler has convinced him of the value of his support.

The Hitler spirit controls not only the Government but also all public opinion. This is best shown by the fact that the Allgemeine Zeitung of Munich, the only liberal paper in Bavaria has been suppressed.
