One of the most outspoken anti-Jewish addresses ever heard here was made last night by Paul Joseph Goebbels,Nazi Minister of Public Enlightenment and Progaganda, Goebbels spoke at the Sport Palace here and reviewed the Nazi government activities for the year of 1933.

“When we look back a year ago,we find public opinion created only by the Jews,” Goebbels declared.”Berlin was not a German city. Everything was Jewish,concerts, theatres and newspapers.And the person who did not read Jewish books was considered uneducated.We were dragged to court because we called a Jew,a Jew.Nobody regrets the loss of such culture.We only pity the nations who bother to pay in attention.”

The Propaganda Minister also declared that :”when anybody says liberal economic views are ecpressed by our leader,we say everything is permitted except disloyalty to the name of our leader.”

Goebbels denied that there was any intention of not changing the economic system.”We merely do not wish the change to come from the street,”he declared . “However,we will certainly introduce quite readical changes.”
