Cohn is, or was, a member of tl

member ?>f that committee he refuse

i-ent to Field Marshal Hindenburg. H
was criticised for this display of disre

floor of the Reichstag. He said:
"I could cite in apology the bomhasti

inopportune occasion on which it ???

Cohn then formulated a series o(
complaint! against the military ad

that the soldiers had been compelled I i

and that in certain army corps an

subject to bombardment by Zeppe'.ir
It was necessary to know what W?

"The devaatetioa of the zone of r

transformed into a desert. The pro

was made for purely German and pure!

Cohen then attacked Chancelle
Bethmann-Hollweg for his habit r
dodging responsibility, saying:
"The Chancellor was opposed to
