Threatening Jews and shouting anti-Semitic slogans, thousands of National Socialists again demonstrated in front of the Hollendorfplatz Theatre yesterday in protest against the showing of the American talking film, All Quiet on the Western Front. The new demonstration began after a heated speech by Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Berlin lieutenant.
Only skillful action by the police, who pushed the great crowd into the side streets, prevented a serious riot. Nevertheless the crowd broke through the police line and headed for the moving picture house but were finally dispersed by the police. Thirty Hitlerites were arrested.
