Download PDF for this date

A staff of 1,000 agitators, schooled specially in racial propaganda, will shortly embark on a nationwide campaign under the supervision of the Nazi racial department, it was revealed today in a report by Walter Gross on the activities of his department.

Racial propaganda, Mr. Gross announced, will be stimulated soon by the opening of a special Government school which will turn out more agitators in this field. In the meantime, he urged all Germans to collaborate with his department in the spread of racial propaganda.

All State officials, Mr. Gross disclosed further, have been instructed by the Ministry of the Interior to attend a special series of courses on the racial question arranged by the racial department to be given in all parts of Germany.

Mr. Gross revealed that a strict censorship is imposed on all Nazi journalists writing on the racial question. Every article written on the subject, he said, must first pass the racial department.
