See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Two members of the Reichstag, Deputies Graefe and Wulle, placed themselves at the head of a miscellaneous crowd which yesterday invaded a number of restaurants and cafes frequented by Jews.

Shouting “Out, you Jewish loafers!” the mob made for a cable occupied by an invalid Jewish physicial and his friends, all of whom escaped from the cafe, bleeding profusely as a result of the encounter.

The Nationalists announce that this was but the beginning of a campaign to limit the number of Jewish guests in cafes.
