Nazi Pupils Told to Read Stuermer Instead of Bible

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

School authorities in the town of Teritz, Saxony, have urged children to read Julius Streicher’s pornographic anti-Semitic weekly, Der Stuermer, instead of the Old Testament, newspapers reported here today.

In reply to a local Catholic priest who publicly urged parishioners to read the Bible instead of the Stuermer, the school authorities issued an order saying:

“Do not read the Old Testament. Read the Stuermer, for the Old Testament spoils the purity of the child’s soul.”
