Goebbels Offers Prizes for Works on Jews

Download PDF for this date

Reichsminister of Propaganda Paul Joseph Goebbels is offering prizes for works on the Jewish question, the Manchester Guardian reported today. Chairs have been created in various universities for lecturers on anti-Semitism and the racial theory, the report stated.

Research men in Jewish history at Munich University are recording the misdeeds of medieval Jews, the Guardian said, and “a forest of sticks is being prepared to beat the Jewish dog. It is questionable whether by the time the new sticks are available there will be enough Jews left to be cudgelled.”

In an editorial the liberal daily commented that “until this persecution is abandoned no great guns and battleships will re-establish Germany’s honor in the eyes of the rest of the world.”
