Declaring that “even the powerful position still held by the Jews outside Germany will not succeed in destroying the Reich,” Klaus Selzner, deputy leader of the German Labor Front, told a Nazi rally that “Germany today is the first anti-Jewish state.”

Addressing 15,000 persons Sunday night, he asserted:

“The grave struggle between the Socialist ideal stressed in Germany and the capitalist desire to rule shown by the Jews is now in the process of development.

“The world is confronted by two opposing forces — first, the German with its creative idealism, and the other, Jewish, with materialistic aims and parasitic existence; the German, with the will to hard labor and the honest worker, and the Jewish, with ambition for income without work.”
