Boycott of Jewish businesses in Halle

Film | Accession Number: 2007.207.1 | RG Number: RG-60.4634 | Film ID: 2842

Pedestrians on a very crowded sidewalk. SA men hold signs reading "Die Juden sind unser Unglueck", although the signs are very hard to read. Another shot of SA men with signs. The camera pans up to show that the name on the shop is "Sobel." A large number of pedestrians pass in front of a business named "D. Hammerschild." The signs the SA men hold read, "Die Juden sind unser Unglueck, kauft nur bei Deutschen." Another sign reads, "Keinen Pfennig dem Judenkapital, kauft nicht in Warenhaeuser und Einheitspreislaeden." SA men with signs stand outside Wohlwerth (Woolworth's), Sponner, and the furniture store Rosenberg. A young woman walking into a store stops short in front of an SA man, who speaks to her and gestures toward his sign. She walks away toward camera, smiling, close view. CU sign: "Deutsche! Kauft nur in deutschen Geschaeften!" [German! Shop only at German businesses!] The next scene shows a formation of SA men as they stand at attention in a courtyard. They turn and march away.
