Scan of front (and only) page of Das Andere Deutschland, March 11, 1933, announcing the weekly newspaper's ban by the provincial criminal police president in Berlin, on the grounds of "public security and order." The ban took place under the authority of the Reichstag Fire Decree (Verordnung des Reichspräsidenten zum Schutze von Volk und Staat) and, though the stated duration of the paper's ban was three months, subsequent measures in the Nazis' consolidation of power cast doubt as to whether it ever appeared again.
