In a speech in Essen, Hermann Goering announces that the police in Germany won't take any special measures to protect Jews from antisemitic violence at the hands of Nazis.

Goering explains:

"The police are not a defense squad for Jewish stores... They tell me I must call out the police to protect them [the Jews]. Certainly, I shall employ the police, and without mercy, wherever German people are hurt, but I refuse to turn the police into a guard for Jewish stores. ...

The nation is aroused. For years past we told the people: 'You can settle accounts with the traitors.' We stand by our word. Accounts are being settled."
