Berlin (Mar. 13)
The new Munich Police-President, Himmler, one of the closest friends of Hitler, has made a statement to the press saying “I fundamentally consider citizens of the Jewish faith as German citizens in every respect. The life and property of Jewish citizens should be afforded the same protection as is accorded to all Germans.” He added that their businesses, too, should be protected.
The appointment of Dr. Joseph Goebels as the new Propaganda Minister, has been followed by the resignation of Dr. Funk as chief of the Federal Press Department.
Funk, for whose appointment Goebels was responsible recently gave assurances through his secretary that the Jews would be adequately protected.
