Guardian Blames Hitler

Download PDF for this date

While Adolf Hitler, National Socialist leader, is seeking to shift the blame for Monday’s anti-Jewish disturbances, the Manchester Guardian today openly charges that the responsibility for the riots rests not with those who were arrested but with the leaders of the National Socialists, namely Herr Hitler, M. Goebbels, Fascist chieftain in Berlin, and M. Rosenberg, editor of the Fascist organ, the Voelkischer Beobachter. “The action of the youth who were arrested was the direct outcome of the anti-Semitic agitation going on from day to day in the National Socialist movement, and the anti-Semitic character of the disorders is beyond any doubt,” the Guardian says.

“National Socialist headquarters has issued a confused and self-contradictory bulletin,” the Guardian writes, “which is characteristic of the National Socialist leaders who are whitewashing themselves of responsibility while their youthful followers are on the way to prison.”

The Manchester Guardian completely discredits the suggestion thrown out
