“Germany’s fight against non-Aryans must become a religion!” declared Dr. Joachim M. Gerke, chief of the race department of the Third Reich, in an address yesterday before students of the Berlin Technical School.

Herr Gerke told the students that the fight must be recognized as “something which God wished us to do,” for the purpose of eliminating “Jewish poison from our German bodies.”
