THE GREENSBOROUGH PATRIOT, (Greensboro), North Carolina, Nov. 24, 1938 Front page coverage has a one column heading: "DEATH GANTLET OF NAZI GUARDS KILLS 12 JEWS ", with subheading: "Group of 62 Beaten with Spades, Whips and Club on Arrival At Concentration Camp.". The article goes on to state in part, "...12 of a group of 62 well-to-do Jews, allegedly were beaten to death when they were made to run a gauntlet of 'Black Guards' at a German concentration camp." The lengthy article goes on to say, "The arrested were mostly well-to-do lawyers, doctors, landlords, engineers, business men and two rabbi". Considerable details are present.

Additionally, the front page has a fascinatingly odd article about a 6 year old girl who dreamed of her own death before it happened.
