The Jews complain that we put up notices for our meetings stating that Jews are not admitted. They also complain that they are given no opportunity to disprove the anti-Semitic arguments,” writes the “National Socialist,” one of the Hitlerist organs.

“Dr. Hollaender, the director of the Central Union of German Citizens of the Jewish Faith,” it proceeds, “complains that Hitler refuses to accept his challenge to submit his charges against the Jews to a non-partisan commission. Our answer is that we do not want to have any discussions with Jews. Our attitude is the logical result of our basic conception that the Jews are an alien people, who do not belong to the German nation, and that they must be treated as an alien element. To discuss this or any other question with Jews, would be to recognize them as a part of things German. The point is that when we say that Jews are not admitted and we refuse to have anything to do with Jews, declining even to discuss or to argue with them, it means that we recognize that the Jews have nothing to do with us. Their place is outside.”
