(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The organizer of the anti-Semitic movement which is being spread in the Soviet Army, is a German Colonel named Nicolai, it is disclosed today in the German Socialist press.

Colonel Nicolai, they state, was the head of the German Espionage Department during the war. He afterwards took an active part in the Putsches aiming to overthrow the German Republican Government. He then went to Russia where he helped to organize the Soviet Army, and succeeded in bringing about the return into the army of the old Czarist officers who had formerly fought against the Soviets in the White armies.
