Nazis Ask Private Libraries to Purge Shelves of Jews’ Books

The Nazi Youth organ, “Hilft Mit,” demanded today that private libraries purge their shelves of all books written by Jews.

Under the caption, “Poison in Our Bookcases,” the periodical publishes a list of prominent Jewish writers and counsels its readers to consult the handbook on the Jewish question written by the late Theodor Fritsch, anti-Semitic theoretician.
