Berne, May. 29 (JTA) – Jews in the Czech Protectorate will face increased restrictions and terror as a result of the appointment of Kurt Daluege, a fanatical Jew-hater, as "Protector" of Bohemia and Moravia, replacing Reinhard Heydrich, who is hovering between life and death in Prague as a result of an attempt to assassinate him, well-informed circles here declared today.

Daluege is remembered in Berne from his activities in October, 1934 when he was sent here by the Gestapo in an attempt to influence the Swiss court that was trying a group of Swiss Nazis being sued for libel by the Berne Jewish Community for issuing and distributing the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion." He helped to marshal the testimony of the defendants and organized espionage against witnesses for the prosecution.

He is one of the early members of the Nazi party and was the head of the underground Nazi group in the Prussian Ministry of the Interior before the Nazis came to power. In 1933 he was appointed by Hitler as Chief Group Leader of the Nazi Elite Guard and in 1936 he was promoted to the post of Chief and General of the German Police Service, intensifying the anti-Jewish police activity in Berlin.
