No improvement in economic conditions, no matter how great, will cause the Nazis to alter their attitude toward the Jews, the Angriff, mouthpiece of Propaganda Minister Paul Joseph Goebbels, stated today.

The Angriff rebuked the Juedische Rundschau, organ of the German Zionists, which stated that the Nazi persecution of the Jews might be relaxed with the improvement of economic conditions. The Rundschau pointed out that Jewish merchants benefited from improved business during the past Christmas, which also saw a weakening in the fanatic anti-Jewish viewpoint of the Nazis.

“Only Jews are capable of sacrificing their ideals for business,” the Angriff retorted, “while Nazism is based on the concept of race and will never pocket or abandon racialism for material abundance.”

Goebbels’ organ recently took German Jewish papers to task
