Nazi anti-Jewish boycott

Gangs arrested Jews, painted "Jews forbidden" onto shop windows, chanted antisemitic slogans, and blocked store entrances.


[Chanting] Germans, defend yourselves. Watch out, Jews. Germans, defend yourselves. Don't buy from Jews. [Chanting]. Germans, free yourselves of Jewish leadership! Germans, defend yourselves!
