Says Every Member Should Pray for Power to Exterminate Jews

Download PDF for this date

“Every Bluecherbund member should pray to God before going to sleep every night to lend him the power to exterminate a few Jews,” is the advice given in a brochure published by Dozen Ruge, Bluecherbund leader at the University here. The “prayer” is quoted by the Forwaerts in connection with the attack against a Catholic priest, at the meeting of the National Socialists, in the presence of Hitler.
