While Reichsfuehrer Adolf Hitler was attacking the Jews in the Nuremberg Nazi Congress, the Rathaus (City Hall) in which he spoke was decorated with a replica of the Holy Roman Imperial crown depicting the ancient Hebrew Kings David, Solomon and Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah, the Austrian press states today. “Did Hitler notice he was speaking in the midst of Jewish kings and prophets?” the newspapers asked.

Hitler ordered the replica of the Holy Roman crown brought to Nuremberg in order to symbolize the continuity of German history which the Third Reich represents in the minds of the Nazis.
