Jews out of German Culture, Hinkel Boasts

The elimination of Jews from German cultural fields has been completed, Hans Hinkel, special commissar for Jewish intellectual and artistic affairs, declared today, in an address before a Nazi meeting here.

Hinkel pointed out that Jews have been completely ousted from the film industry, where they formerly dominated, and from the German theater. Jews have also been completely eliminated from the journalistic field and from the schools, he said. “Their influence on German culture today is nil,” the Nazi cultural commissar declared.
