Rome (Sep. 22)
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.
