Trouble in Danzig

December 12, 1934
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

With the attention of our Jewish diplomats focused on the Saar region, the interests of some 7,000 Jews in Danzig have been entirely overlooked.

The Jewish situation in Danzig is becoming as serious as in the Saar. Though Danzig is under the administration of a Commissioner appointed by the League of Nations, the Nazis are gaining a stronghold there and are beginning to control public life in the Free City.

The anti-Jewish propaganda in Danzig is growing right under the nose of the League of Nations High Commissioner and nothing is being done to stop it. Jewish employes are being thrown out of their positions because of Nazi threats and nothing is being done to check it. It is high time that our Jewish leaders should do something for the Jews of Danzig, before it is too late.
