In preparation for the forthcoming Nazi party congress, all villages in the neighborhood of Nuremberg, where the congress is to be held, have been decorated with large signs, “Jews enter this village at their own risk,” “Jews are not wanted here” and “This village is free from Jews.”

Die Deutsche Zeitung, important Nazi paper, proudly points out that even in the fourteenth century Nuremberg was already opposed to the Jews.

Nuremberg is the headquarters of Julius Streicher, editor of the anti-Jewish weekly, Der Stuermer, and Nazi commissioner for Franconia. Under his rule Nuremberg has become notorious as the most outspoken anti-Semitic city in Germany.
