The Praepositus Milarch, in his speech at the last Sedan celebration, said, among other things: “Shall it be said of us, as it was once said of the children of Israel at the foot of Mount Sinai: ‘They sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play’? Curse him who degrades the Sedan celebration in such a way.” But the speaker also had Jews in his audience. Thus there appeared in the public papers an “urgent declaration” signed by the Jewish congregation in Neubrandenburg, in which it rejected with “deepest indignation” that Milarch had used this opportunity “for an extremely violent outburst against our ancestors at Mount Sinai.” Eventually these Jewish fellows will probably forbid this also: that preachers continue to preach what they did on Mount Golgotha.
