Download PDF for this date

S. A. Mann, organ of the Nazi storm troops with a circulation of 400,000 has followed the lead of Reichsfuehrer Hitler in his speech at Schwerin, running a frontpage spread laying the guilt for the assassination of Wilhelm Gustloff, Swiss Nazi leader, at the door of world Jewry.

Calling for a world-wide battle against the Jews, the paper declared that “no nation can escape the necessity of fighting Jewry.”

Asserting that the world faces the alternative of “fighting Jewry” or “being vanquished by it,” the paper charged the Jews with “plotting not only against Germany but against every nation of the world.”
