Propaganda for the spring employment campaign of the Nazis is being conducted in Nuremberg and all through the Franconian province along the lines laid down by Julius Streicher, bitter anti-Semite and editor of the Nuremberg weekly, Der Stuermer, a survey by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency established today. Streicher will be remembered as the organizer and prime mover in the April 1 boycott on the Jews last year.

Streicher has been one of the influential Nazi leaders who have persisted in their demands for the complete boycotting of the Jews despite the more moderate stand of a wing of the Hitler cabinet.


The survey revealed that the orders of the central Nazi authorities against campaigns against the Jews are not being taken {SPAN}##{/SPAN} by local Nazi leaders in Franconia, who are following the example of extremists such as Streicher.

Meetings of the Nazi traders and artisans’ organization the Hago, are being held frequently. The chief aim of the Hago is the ousting of Jews from trade and commerce. Speakers at the meetings of this group reiterate that “the Jewish problem will be settled according to the demand of our leader, Streicher.”


Jewish shops in Nuremberg were prevented by the Nazis from selling anything at all last Saturday. Nazi pickets were posted outside the shops and customers dared not enter shops which did not display the sign “German firm”.

At Ansbach, near Nuremberg all entrances to the town and roads leading to other towns great posters reading “No Jews Wanted” were placed in prominent spots Similar posters were placed on level railway crossings on the Frankfurt to Paris route. Near Ansbach and other towns, parties of Nazis stopped automobiles and searched them for Jewish passengers. Wherever they found Jewish agents of commercial concerns they were forbidden to enter the towns.

At Neustadt Jews were forbidden to sell bread.
