Making Matzo in the Lower East Side


Last year, Streit's closed its 90-year-old matzo factory on the Lower East Side of New York City. The Rivington Street location that produced unleavened bread for the Passover holiday had been a hallmark of the one-time Jewish enclave, alongside mainstays like Russ & Daughters and Katz's Deli.

A woman packages Streit’s matzo to be sent to Berlin during World War II. According to the company, only two-thirds of each box was filled with matzo, the rest was secretly filled with bullets for the resistance movement.

A fat lot of good that did. The Nazis burned the matzos as fuel in the incinerators and used the cartridges against the people and the Allies.

And if anybody tried that today, the FUSA king's men would intercept the shipments before it left our shores, burn the matzos, and throw the shippers into a very deep hole where the light of habeas corpus never shines. How dare any FUSA peon interfere with the Deep State's foreign policies!

All that remains is sending the surviving family members the incarceration bill. Oh wait, that's collected in advance with civil asset forfeiture.
