Download PDF for this date

The Nazi theory that Jesus was not a Jew but a “pure Aryan” was advanced again today by “Das Wissen Der Nation,” official publication of the Hitlerite government department for racial questions.

Under the headline: “Was Jesus A Jew?” the paper asserted that “Jesus was not Judean, but Galilean, thus a pure hundred percent Aryan.”
