British Press Calls Talk by Hitler at Nuremberg Tedious Anti-semitic Folly

“Tedious anti-Semitic folly,” was the reaction of the English press today to Hitler’s latest outburst against the Jews, delivered yesterday at the Nuremburg conference of the Nazi party. Although Hitler’s tirade against the Jews constituted only a small part of his lengthy address, the Daily Telegraph featured it most prominently, deploring at the same time the race dogma of the National Socialist movement, as ignorant nonsense but nevertheless highly dangerous political poison. It constitutes an intellectually feeble and morally repulsive part of the Nazi movement, the paper states.

The News Chronicle ridiculed Hitler’s verbal violence, which puts little demand on his intellectual output, “since savage words repeat themselves as easily as savage deeds.”
