Claims Hitler Foreign Policy Leads to Ruin

Download PDF for this date

“What I Learned in Nazi Germany,” a booklet written by Major Frank Pease and just published by the American Defender Press at 221 Centre street, links Communism and Nazism in Germany.

Pease, a former officer of the United States Army and a writer for a number of American magazines, expresses apprehension with regard to both the internal structure of the Third Reich and Hitler’s foreign policies. Pease contends that the Nazi structure of Hitler’s domain merely shelters huge masses of Communists now parading in brown shirts and that the foreign policy of the Hitler Government is rapidly leading the nation to another debacle such as that of 1914.

Pease describes the bitterness of Nazis in Germany toward Americans and America, a fact which #he major states was evidenced by Nazi assaults on his own and the person of his wife during their stay. He charges that he and his wife bore the brunt of a vicious Nazi attack and that American diplomatic officials made no effort to protest.

“The Vaterland,” Pease writes, “itself is a country of overgrown kindergartners who look upon the nations around them as but blocks to play with—never mind the blood, and damn the consequences. Germans have more intellectual intolerance than any other tribe on earth. They are of the fearful breed which is ‘always right.’ Their very sneers are ex cathedra.”
