Goering Warns Jews in Germany Will Pay for Any Boycott Abroad

AIR MINISTER HERMANN WILHELM GOERING WARNED THE JEWS YESTERDAY THAT IMMEDIATE REPRISALS AGAINST THE JEWS OF GERMANY WOULD BE TAKEN FOR ANY BOYCOTT OF GERMAN GOODS ABROAD.

“I EMPHASIZE THAT IF THE JEWS AGAIN THINK OF AN ANTI-GERMAN BOYCOTT, GERMAN JEWRY WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THE DAMAGE,” GENERAL GOERING DECLARED AT THE CONGRESS OF GERMANS ABROAD.

HE EMPHASIZED THAT GERMAN BUSINESS MAN HAD BEEN INSTRUCTED NOT TO EMPLOY ANY JEWISH COMMERCIAL REPRESENTATIVES ABROAD. GOERING IS THE DICTATOR OF THE REICH’S FOUR-YEAR PLAN FOR SELF-SUFFICIENCY.

(THE NEW YORK TIMES QUOTED GENERAL GOERING AS SAYING: “GERMANS ABROAD CAN AND MUST HELP IN PROMOTING THE SALE OF GERMAN GOODS. GERMAN BUSINESS FIRMS MUST UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES EMPLOY JEWISH REPRESENTATIVES, FOR THE JEWS HAVE NO INTEREST IN PUSHING GERMAN GOODS.”)
