Nazis Start Campaign of Destruction (Continued from Page One) located. They arrested looters and cleared the streets. . . "The justifiable and understand able indignation of the . German people over the cowardly Jewish murder of a German, diplomat in Paris has resulted during the past night in extensive demonstra Hons," said Goebbels. He referred to the killing of Ernst Vom Rath, secretary of tho| Paris embassy, by a 17-year-old Polish Jew who had lived in Germany. Notion-wide Drive - Telephoned reports from many parts of Germany showed that anti-Jewish violence, beginning early today, was nation-wide. Seven of Berlin's 20 synagogues were burned. All Vienna's 21 syn agogues were reported burned, wrecked or badly damaged. In Munich all Jews were told by nngry Nazis that they must leave the country within *8 hours. "In numerous cities and com munities of the reich," said Goeb bcls' appeal, "acts of violence were committed against Jewish build ings and businesses. "The entire population is now, however, strictly requested to de­ list Immediately from all furthei demonstrations and actions of whatever nature. against Jewdom Fear Banishment "The final answer to Jewry will lie given in the form of laws or decrees." Responsible Jews hearing this closing sentence expressed tears that a general order would be is r.ued compelling all Jews to leave the country. Goebbels' appeal was issued at 4 p.m. some 14 hours after violence began In Berlin. A General Campaign The nationwide extent of the anti-Jewish wave was shown by the following telephoned reports from many cities to the Associated Press: Munich—All Jews were told they must leave the country within 48 hours. The only remaining Jewish hank, Aufhausers, was] raided and its windows smashed. One of iis--directors and his wife committed suicide, another was taken to a concentration camp. Nuernberg—Private houses of Jews were entered "'children thrown out of their beds, furni ture was smashed, carpets torn up. Cologne—Crowds broke win dows in nearly every Jewish shop. An entrance to a synagogue was forced, its seats overturned, windows smashed,, books torn One building was set afire but the blaze was quickly extinguished. Salzburg—A synagogue was dc< strayed and its ritual emblems demolished. Shops of small Jewish tradesmen were invaded, demolished and looted. Potsdam — A synagogue was raided and Jewish shops destroyed, Treutlingen, Bamberg and Bay reulh, all in Bavaria, reported synagogues demolished. At Eborswalde, Brandenburg and Kottbus, all near Berlin, synagogues were burned. Kindle Large Store Late in the afternoon fire broke out in Israel's department store, one of the three largest in Berlin, partly owned by British interests. Firemen extinguished the blaze. Israel's is near Alexander Square and all traffic in that section was tied up. Plunder Storm Mobs charged into a police guard in the heart of and began plundering shattered Jewish shops while smoke still billowed from synagogues in various parts of the capital. Shop windows were smashed In several German centers. Synagogues were broken into. Fires raged in seven of the 20 Berlin Synagogues as well as in Munich and Dresden synagogues. Crowds, angry and plunder- bent, pushed police aside in Fried- rlchslrasse, in downtown Berlin, and surged into the arcade between that important avenue and famed Unter Den Linden. The arcade houses many. Jewish shops. More Than Score Suicides Vienna dispatches reported the total or partial destruction of nil the 21 synagogues in the city. Vienna, Jews said 22 of' their number had committee! suicide in despair. One synagogue in the Austrian capital was blown up, three others wrecked while storm troopers cbmpclled Jews to begin tearing down another. In Berlin a-mot. h&d_ jammed Frlcdriehstrasse since riottrrg be.-] gan early in the morning. Police were helpless against a looting crowd, angered by the killing of Ernst Vom Rath, secretary of the Paris embassy, by Herschel Gryn- sV.pan. Vom Rath, shot Monday, died yesterday. Police said no extra officers were available to handle the Friedrichstrasse mob, as all had been sent to other trouble spots, especially to the burning synagogues. Hourly new reports of destruction and violence came from different sections of Germany. Dozens Of synagogues were reported raided, desecrated or burned in Cologne, Hamburg, Dresden and Vienna. One of Berlin's newest synagogues on Prinz Regentcn Strasse was still ablaze at 1:30 p. m. The cupola was burning although the front still was standing. Officials would not say whether they considered the fires incendiary. Jews Cannot Arm - DNB, the official German news agency, in a short bulletin said of the violence that "the grossly enraged German people vented their ire in manifold strong anti-Jewish actions." Heinrich Himmler, chief of the secret police, issued a decree forbidding Jews to carry weapons. Twenty years in concentration camp is the penally for violation. Police squads made rapid tours of the city in automobiles in an apparent effort- to check the violence, which authoritative Nazi quarters yesterday said was officially disapproved. No accurate estimate of the damage could be had for the window , smashing, looting of shop windows, and fires, but it may total millions of marks. (The mark is 40 cents). - Gangs, moving through. Berlin streets before dawn smashed every Jewish store front they could identify by the white letters police orders require. When the death of Vom Rath became known in Vienna early this morning angry throngs collected in the Jewish section, Leo- poldstadt, adjoining the main business section. Systematic Destruction The gangs moved systematically up, and down.each street, and in the main avenue not one shop window of a Jewish-owned business remained intact.' The shattering of glass in' the shops scratched furniture,- soiled articles on display and broke porcelain and fixtures. A typical band had four mem bcrs v i5!b «u4raKeJed slowly in an automobile. Seeing~n-white-lettered store, they would jump from the car and with sticks smash the front windows. Then they would dart quickly away as the clatter of broken glass pierced the otherwise quiet morning. In the fashionable Tauentzien- strassc, those who left night clubs at a late hour treated the wrecking as. a lark. They picked up pieces of broken glass from ground floors and hurled them into windows on the floors above. Can't Replace Windows -, Looting started almost at once. No object of value was. left in the show windows of many of the shops. One gang halted an Associated Press reporter trying to telephone his office from a pay booth, and shouted at him, "You atrocity monger!" They permitted him to go unharmed. The damage done to the Jewish stores probably means that shots fired in Paris would have killed Jewish business in Berlin. Doubt existed among some that glass would be, available under restrictions of the German four-year economic plan to permit them to restore the shops. They indicated they probably would choose to Close their shops permanently.
