Streicher Finds ‘elders of Zion’ Guilty of Marseille Murders

King Alexander of Yugoslavia and Foreign Minister Louis Barthou of France were “assassinated on the orders of the Elders of Zion,” Julius Streicher, Nazi anti-Semitic leader, declared today in addressing an audience of 4,000 awed Germans.

The Nazi commissioner for Franconia demonstrated to his own satisfaction that the plot to kill the two European statesmen was part of the ancient plot by the Elders of Zion to attain world rule.
