(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

“The Traitors’ Congress in Basle–Basle 1897, Basle 1927” is the headline of an article by the National Socialist writer, Alfred Rosenberg, appearing in the “Voelkischer Beobachter,” the organ of the Hitlerist Party.

“The Fifteenth Zionist Congress at Basle,” the article says “is a Congress of the Elders of Zion.” The writer then quotes long passages from the “Protocols” to support his contention.
