Streicher Embarks on New Anti-jewish Crusade

Download PDF for this date

Germany’s anti-Semite No. 1, Julius Streicher, took the stump today in a new crusade to stimulate Nazis into active prosecution of the anti-Jewish campaign.

The crusade is featured by a travelling exhibit labelled, “World Enemy No. 1 — Jewish Bolshevism,” which he is accompanying and for which he is the principal speaker.

Addressing a crowd of 15,000 at Karlsruhe, Herr Streicher boasted that the Nazi Party Congress at Nuremberg had endorsed his campaign against the Jews. He announced that he knew more about the Jewish question than “3,000 professors.”

Replying to a question from the audience, he declared the “only Jew I ever knew was so decent that he committed suicide. I wouldn’t mind if all Jews were that decent.”

He urged his hearers to boycott Jews and all those “imbued with the Jewish spirit.”
