Murder Rite Cry Sweeps Naziland

May 22, 1934
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Ritual murder accusations against the Jews are spreading all over Germany. Fredricus, Nazi paper, picked up the campaign initiated by Der Stuermer and devoted most of its issue to repeating the accusations contained in the special May Day issue of Streicher’s Jewbaiting weekly.

Under an inch-high banner, “Jewish Murders,” the Nazi paper described alleged ritual murders and other crimes supposed to have been committed by the Jews.

In Danzig, a paper patterned on Der Stuermer and bearing the same name reporduced most of the Nuremberg paper’s stories on alleged ritual murders.
