Berlin Aide Attempts to Justify ‘pure Race’

Download PDF for this date

Dr. Walter Gross, director of the Race Research Institute in Berlin in a letter to Al Difa, Arabic daily newspaper here, attempts to justify measures taken by Nazi chieftains to “purify the German race.”

The English and eastern nations, such as India, China and Japan, will be obliged to purge their national bodies, the writer states. He expresses surprise at attacks on Germany engendered by the “race purification.” The Reich, he says, has no thought of vilifying or ousting the alien people in its midst, but of treating them as “honored guests.”
