Nazis Move for More Vigorous Anti-semitic Agitation to Retain Hold on Populace

Download PDF for this date

A more vigorous anti-Jewish agitation throughout Germany is the latest move of the National-Socialist leaders in a frantic effort to keep the masses with them, leaders of the Central Association of German Citizens of Jewish Faith declared tonight. It is pointed out that President Hoover’s war debt moratorium has frustrated the hopes of the Nazi chieftains of keeping the populace discontented and therefore they have decided to turn the interest of the masses to Jew-hatred.

M. Mutscham, a Nazi deputy and a prominent Dresden industrialist, declared at a meeting today that synagogues will burn in order that the ten year fight of the Nazis should not be in vain. The chief Nazi organ, the Voelkischer Beobachter, today charges the Jews with sponsoring “daily murders” of Nazi members. “The Jews are turning Germany into a murderous Russia, but we’ll destroy the Jewish pest which is responsible for Germany’s misfortune,” the paper declares.
