“A Hitlerite war on the Jews can only mean the breakdown of Germany’s economic machinery,” says the London Sunday Referee, analyzing the German situation. The paper expresses the fear that the planned march of the Hitlerites on Potsdam may become a bloody event during which the Jewish population will suffer first. “From an internal point of view a Hitlerite coup d’etat can only mean economic disaster to Germany while Hitler’s anti-Jewish war will result in a breakdown in Germany’s economic machinery because it is largely the Jewish elements that make the economic wheel go round in Germany,” the paper says.

Other London papers are seriously discussing the alleged forthcoming march of the Hitlerites on Potsdam, and say that from every point of view such an advantage can be looked upon with apprehension.
