Berlin (Aug. 18)
Germany’s “solution” of the Jewish question was held up as a model for the rest of the world to follow in a short wave radio broadcast today by Hans Hinkel, commissar of “non-Aryan” culture.
“The world must realize,” Mr. Hinkel declared, “that the German solution of cultural Jewish problems cannot be altered since they are based on justice. “Also, He added, “they might serve as a model for the rest of the world.”
Meantime, the Stuermer, Julius Streicher’s notorious anti-Semitic weekly, was reported here today as having embarked upon a methodical campaign to undermine the existence of the remaining Jewish business and financial concerns.
An indication of the methods being pursued by the Stuermer in this direction was revealed in a letter the publication sent to a large business house near this city.
The letter reads: “We note with amazement that your list of customers includes the following Jewish firms. Your explanation is awaited. Heil Hitler.”
Other developments in the nation-wide campaign against Jews, which continued to gather momentum after Streicher’s speech here Thursday night, are as follows:
In Munich, Minister of Public Health Dr. W. Schultz, addressing a meeting of the German Academy at the University of Munich, announced that a law will be promulgated shortly forbidding marriages between “Aryans” and Jews or half-Jews. He also announced that trade with Jews will be legally forbidden and that fines will be imposed upon Germans who continue to patronize Jewish shops.
Dr. Schultz further disclosed that Jewish children will be entirely excluded from German schools. In the future, he stated,
no Jew will be permitted to become the manager of any enterprise. Neither will Jews in the future be allowed to employ German servants, Dr. Schultze announced.
In Schluechtern, Hessen-Nassau, German shops displayed notices that Jews would not be served there. Jewish stores and residences in the city were plastered with yellow posters today with the single word “Jew” in large black type.
