Goering Speeds Hitler’s Death, Brown Declares

Download PDF for this date

By Christmas time Adolf Hitler may lose his life through Hermann Goering, air minister, G. Harrison Brown, British journalist, predicted on a visit here to Mayor Hoan.

Brown, who has been forbidden to reenter Germany because of his anti-Hitlerite writings, pointed out that “Goering is consumed with ambitions to get into Hitler’s chair; Hitler may meet death by Christmas.”

Hitlerism was described by Brown as a front for Fritz Thyssen, armament maker and head of the German steel trust.

“Thyssen has used Hitlerism to install industrial feudalism,” Brown added. “He is turning Germany into a state in which the worker is just a serf with a gun at his head.”

Both revolt and war were pictured by Brown as inevitable for Germany. He pointed out that Goering’s greatest dream is an aero-chemical war and that Goering is confident Germany would be unbeatable in conflict because it is a nation of technicians.
