The middle ages ended with the coming of Hitler to power, German students henceforth will be taught, it was announced today by Prof. Dauenler in the first of a series of lectures for high school teachers at the University of Berlin auditorium.

“Not with the discovery of America, not with the Reformation were the middle ages ended,” Prof. Dauenler declared, “but with Hitler’s coming to power.”

This new version of the history of the middle ages, Prof. Dauenler stated, will be taught in all German schools.
