While trying to escape into Austria after the Beer Hall Putsch he is stopped at the board and his passport taken. He was arrested and taken to a hospital in Garmisch to tend to his leg wound. Due to the seriousness of his wounded leg the police allowed him to stay in the hospital instead of being moved to jail - They allowed him to do this on his word that he would not try to escape. Nevertheless he puts on a fur coat on over his hospital gown and with the aid of a fake passport enters into Austria.

Göring had summoned the top three Jewish leaders (Julius Brodnitz, Max Naumann, and Heinrich Stahl) to a meeting about the Jewish led boycott against Germany. A couple of the Zionist groups had caught wind of the meeting - wanting their their Zionist views to be represented too they went uninvited. The only Zionist allowed in the meeting was Zionist Kurt Blumenfeld of the German Zionist Federation.

After being formally introduced to Göring the Jewish leaders were then yelled at by Göring. He claims that they were spreading lies about Jews being attacked by Nazi forces, and they needed to stop the foreign Jews boycotting Germany. In response to Göring saying there were no crimes being committed against the Jews Naumann gives Göring a laundry list of what the Nazis had been doing to the Jews, and he even produced a newspaper clipping showing Nazis forcing Jews to scrub streets with a brushes.

While the other three Jewish leaders said there was nothing that they could really do to stop the protest in foreign countries Blumenfeld cut into the conversation and stated that he could easy communicate with the foreign Jewish groups which pleased Göring.

Cyrus Adler and Alfred Cohen receive a cable stating that the Nazi Göring was forcing top Jewish officials to lie about Nazis atrocities. The cable warned Jewish officials would be sending out cables to Jews abroad telling them to stop the anti-Nazi boycott because the anti-Nazi hysteria had been overly hyped.

Instead of releasing the cable to the public which would empower the anti-Nazi boycott the two men kept it hush, and sent the cable to the Secretary of State Cordel Hull who had already been oppressing this kind of information. Hull’s response was to setup a meeting time to discuss the contents of the cable.
