German Press Suppresses News of Anti-jewish Activities; Drive in Commerce Intensified

WITH THE JEWISH QUESTION TURNED OVER TO THE NAZI PARTY FOR “LIQUIDATION” AND THE DRIVE AGAINST THE JEWS GAINING INTENSITY ON THE POLITICAL, ECONOMIC AND CULTURAL FRONTS, THE GERMAN PRESS HAS ADOPTED A NEW POLICY OF SUPPRESSING REPORTS OF ANTI-JEWISH DISCRIMINATION, A SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT OF THE JEWISH TELEGRAPHIC AGENCY FOUND.

WHEREAS ONCE NEWSPAPERS FEATURED REPORTS ON THE ANTI-JEWISH CAMPAIGN, THEY NOW RARELY MENTION SUCH ACTIVITIES, AND ONLY IN EXCEPTIONAL CASES DO THEY REPORT COURT ACTIONS INVOLVING JEWS.

DER STUERMER, PUBLISHED BY JULIS STREICHER, GOVERNOR OF FRANCONIA AND HIGH PRIEST OF GERMAN ANTI-SEMITISM, IS PRACTICALLY ALONE IN REPORTING SUCH NEWS. IT IS APPARENTLY EXEMPT FROM THE PROPAGANDA MINISTRY’S DECREES TO THE PRESS.

BUT NEWSPAPERS DO NOT HESITATE TO GIVE PROMINENCE TO ANTI-SEMITIC ARTICLES OR TO REPORTS FROM ELSEWHERE DEEMED HARMFUL TO THE JEWS.

IT IS BELIEVED HERE THAT THE MOTIVE FOR HUSHING UP NEWS OF THE ANTI-JEWISH CAMPAIGN IS TO WITHDRAW THE JEWISH QUESTION IN GERMANY FROM FOREIGN EARS AND THUS TO REMOVE A SOURCE OF FRICTION IN EXTERNAL AFFAIRS THE WHILE PERMITTING SILENT LIQUIDATION OF THE PROBLEM.

IN COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY THIS DRIVE IS PRODUCING RESULTS. JEWISH INDUSTRIES, PARTICULARLY IN CENTRAL GERMANY, ARE BEING SYSTEMATICALLY DEPRIVED OF RAW MATERIALS. WITH MANY INDUSTRIES UNABLE, OWING TO THE SHORTAGE OF RAW MATERIALS, TO SUPPLY THE DOMESTIC DEMAND AND THEREFORE ONLY PARTLY FILLING ORDERS, JEWISH WHOLESALERS ARE FINDING THEIR ORDERS PASSED OVER WHILE “ARYAN” CONCERNS REGULARLY RECEIVE A STIPULATED PROPORTION OF THEIR REQUIREMENTS.

BY SUCH MEANS JEWISH INDUSTRIALISTS AND WHOLESALERS ARE BEING RAPIDLY FORCED OUT OF BUSINESS.
