Hitler’s Paper Attacks Dickstein’s Investigation

Download PDF for this date

The Voelkischer Beobachter, leading Nazi organ, fiercely attacks Congressman Samuel Dickstein for his announcement of an investigation of Nazi propaganda in the United States subsidized by the German government. The Beobachter declared that to mention “all his lies would be too much honor for Dickstein.”

In the same issue, Alfred Rosenberg, unofficial foreign minister of the Nazi party, in an editorial on the “militarism of others”, deplores the attitude of the League of Nations on the refugee question and states that Germany is uninterested in private relief action for Ernst Toller, Professor Albert Einstein and others as long as the League is uninterested in the fate of the Volga German colonists.

The Germans living in the Volga region of the Soviet Republic, the German newspapers claim, are starving. Funds for their relief have been collected in Germany, to which President von Hindenburg, Adolf Hitler and other officials have contributed.
