Two large, bold printed titles on each half of page, each followed by a paragraph, "KRIEBEL" printed in lower right side of each half of page
Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Broadside printed in both German and French warning French civilians that sabotage directed at military communications is forbidden and will be met with severe punishment, including possible death. By way of example, it states that one Parisian factory employee named Henri-Jules Guerin of Paris had cut a cable, was apprehended by local citizens, court-martialed, and sentenced to death. In effort to maintain good relations with the free population, all saboteurs must be handed over to the German military authorities immediately and thus avoid the use of force against the citizenry. The announcement is signed in type at the conclusion by one Divisionkommandeur Generalmajor Karl Kriebel.
