Nazi Institute to Write History of Jewish Question

Download PDF for this date

An appeal to the entire German nation to aid in the collection of all possible data shedding light on the Jewish question, the political side of the world war and the history of the Nazi Party, has been issued by Dr. Walter Frank, president of the Reich Institute for the History of New Germany.

Dr. Frank points out in the appeal that the material on the Jewish question will be used as the basis of a history on that subject not only in Germany but in other European countries. He discloses also that large sums have been assigned for this work by the Nazi Party as well as by the German Government.

Dr. Frank reveals that three special departments of the institute were established on April 1 to gather material on the three questions. The Jewish division has its headquarters in Munich, under the directorship of Professor Karl Alexander von Mueller, president of the Bavarian Academy of Science. His assistant is Dr. Wilhelm Grau, well-known Nazi expert on the Jewish question.

The appeal states that information may be given in writing or orally, by relating experiences throwing light on the Jewish question in Germany and throughout the world.
