Nazis Put Up Slander Barrage in “scientific” Anti-jew Drive

Download PDF for this date

An international front to further anti-Semitism throughout the world and to combat the rising tide of indignation which the anti-Jewish methods of the Nazis has universally aroused, was organized today in the form of an international body, “The Front of Foreign Scientist Friends of the Hitler Movement.”

The program was outlined today in vulgar, insulting and far from scientific language and accuses the Jews of capturing German trade and industry and of “judaizing” German officialdom, the universities and justice. It runs down the Jews as swindlers, gutter writers and bankrupters whom Germany should have driven out long ago.

“What Hitler’s Germany has done to the Jews,” states this curious manifesto, “is not barbarism but the direct and healthy reaction against Jews in high positions.”

The program further alleges that Jews constitute 75 percent of the lawyers in Berlin, Frankfurt and Breslau, and 80 to 100 percent of the doctors in Berlin hospitals.

Addressing a meeting here, Piero Morganatti voiced regrets that the German fight against Jewish influence is not being represented “in a proper light abroad.” He emphasized that Jewish “atrocity” propaganda would soon be silenced by the sending of special speakers abroad to show the world that the German actions were justified.
