The Pariser Tageblatt, German language paper edited by Georg Bernhard, former editor of the Vossische Zeitung, today published a report from its non-Jewish special correspondent completely confirming Jewish Telegraphic Agency reports of the utter misery of the Jewish population in Franconia, where Julius Streicher is the Nazi czar.

According to the Pariser Tageblatt, Nuremberg Jews are not allowed to enter cafes and even have been prevented from eating in the favorite Jewish cafe, Kuenstlerhaus. The Nuremberg municipality has forced the owners of the cafe to employ a Nazi manager and Jews are no longer allowed to eat there.

A child committing the grievous sin of buying chocolate in a Jewish shop in Nuremberg was forbidden by the school teacher to join school excursions for a two weeks’ period.

Despite frequent denials of the truth of the story, all officials in the Nuremberg region have been forced to sign pledges not to buy from Jews.

The gymnasium of the Jewish Ex-Soldiers Federation was closed by local authorities and Nazi hooligans looted the place of its equipment.

Foreigners are avoiding the Nuremberg region. The famous toy industry of Nuremberg and other industries are at a complete stand-still as a consequence of the disorders.
