Avers Nazis Will Never Halt Drive

The renewed anti-Jewish campaign in Germany is not a victory of the radicals in the National Socialist Party but is the natural consummation of a National Socialist demand which will never be dropped, the Westdeutscher Beobachter, one of the leading Nazi organs, declares today.

“We cannot and we will not allow the Jew who has been pushed out of our State and cultural life, to entrench himself more firmly in economic life,” the paper writes, adding that this would be “more dangerous” because too much non-Jews are still patronizing Jewish stores.


Reichsminister Rudolf Hess, Hitler’s right-hand man, in a speech delivered last night, declared that there are still 33,500 Jews in Prussia employed in industry and artisanship, and 90,000 Jews employed in trade and commerce.

The statistical department of the Reichsvertretung der Deutschen Juden, the supreme Jewish representative body of Germany, informs the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that these figures are based on a vocational census taken before Hitler came into power.

The number of Jewish employes in trade and commerce, the organization reports, fell by twenty per cent by June, 1933, as compared with the census figures of 1925.
