Von Hindenburg Reported Leaning Toward Fascists

Download PDF for this date

President von Hindenburg is said of late to be leaning toward the opinions of the Right Wing radicals and is desirous that Chancellor Bruening build a cabinet with the National Socialists (Fascists) because he sees no way for an alliance with the Socialists. This is expressed by M. von Gerlach, in an editorial in the Welt am Montag, of which he is the editor.

Basing his statement on the fact that President von. Hindenburg has been influenced by his son and his military associates, von Gerlach says that Hindenburg feels that if a Right Wing coalition is not formed, the present cabinet will have to resign. Gerlach says if this is true he fears the danger of a crisis.
