Reich Paper Attacks Streicher, Urges Rights for ‘non-aryans’

A sensation was created in Germany today when the Frankfurter Zeitung, one of the few papers to retain some semblance of independence, opened a strong campaign against anti-Semitism as conducted by Julius Streicher, who describes himself as the “outstanding anti-Semite in Germany.”

“Streicherism,” as the paper described his policy, was exorciated and his attempt to extend anti-Semitism from Franconia to other parts of Germany was termed “monstrous.”

His policy would make a solution of the “non-Aryan” problem impossible, the Frankfurter Zeitung declared, adding that “a solution of this problem is unavoidable in view of the fact that hundreds of thousands of ‘non-Aryans’ remain in Germany despite the unbearable conditions.”

An edict of the Franconian Nazis forbidding Jews to remain in certain towns more than twelve hours, and frequent announcements that all the Jews have been forced to emigrate, was condemned by the paper.
