Italian Paper Breaks Silence, Attacks Nazis

Download PDF for this date

The marked reluctance of the Italian press to criticize the Nazi regime in Germany was broken today by the editor of La Stampa, who made a direct attack against the racial theories of the Nazis.

Signor Piazza, in his article which ridiculed the Nazi differentiation between race and nation, declares that a strong nation is not one that falls down in idolatrous adoration before its own image. The thought that a single clan of elects can carry out the historic task of the German nation the editor of La Stampa ridicules as a violation of realities.

In conclusion Signor Piazza expressed his scorn for Adolf Hitler, who instead of uniting the German people, had made membership in the ruling class a question of birth.
