Berlin (Aug. 25)
After quoting the resolution on the German-Jewish situation adopted last night by the Eighteenth World Zionist Congress, the Berliner Tageblatt comments that it is far less sharp than was expected but that, nevertheless, to state that the German Jews are hindered in the practice of their religion is to misrepresent facts. Such and other misstatements, says the Tageblatt, are bound to prejudice the position of the German Jews.
As yet the rest of the German press has carried neither the text of the resolution nor any comments on it.
The Zionist Congress at Prague has been very sharply watched by the German press as a whole. At least two articles by one of Hitler’s chief lieutenants, Alfred Rosenberg, have appeared in the Voelkischer Beobachter, personal organ of Chancellor Hitler, warning the Jews that the actions of the Congress are being watched and threatening reprisals against the Jews if the Congress takes any anti-German steps.
