2 Papers Snipe at Each Other in Reich Fight

Download PDF for this date

A bitter attack against the Frankfurter Zeitung, influential German newspaper, was launched by the Fraenkischer Tageszeitung, published by Julius Streicher, leading German anti-Semite.

Streicher’s paper bemoaned the fact that the Frankfurter Zeitung had completely ignored and neglected to report the Jewish world conference at Geneva, in which “American Jewry played an important part.” According to the Nazi paper, “Dr. Cyrus Adler, president of the American Jewish Committee, and Paul F. Warburg, son of Felix M. Warburg, took leading roles in the Geneva conference.”

“The Frankfurter Zeitung is still in sympathy with world Jewry,” Streicher’s organ declared.

In an editorial published immediately afterwards the Frankfurter Zeitung ridiculed the story in the anti-Semitic sheet, declaring that “these papers are compelled to invent campaigns in order to hold onto their subscribers.” The attack was also termed “a deliberate attempt to incite the authorities against the Frankfurter Zeitung.”
