Nazi Weekly Urges “aryans” Drop Adam and Eve

Download PDF for this date

Adam and Eve, oldest of Biblical names, should be blacklisted as “unfit for Aryans,” it was urged today by the Reichswart, Count Ernest Reventlow’s anti-Semitic weekly. The same issue also demands the elimination from the German language of Jewish and Hebrew words which have become part of the German vernacular.

An “Aryan” merchant named Loerrach was today sentenced to five months in prison for having denounced his brother as of Jewish origin in order to eliminate him as a competitor.
