Berlin Printing Millions of Anti-semitic Leaflets in Russian, Paris Hears

The Havas News Agency reported from Zurich today that the Scherl Printing House in Berlin was turning out millions of anti-Semitic tracts in the Russian language.

The dispatch said the tracts demand that Jewish functionaries in the Soviet Union be replaced by “younger men.” German Consul-General Von Saucken at Moscow was reported to have approved the text of the pamphlets.

According to the French news agency’s Zurich correspondent, Chancellor Adolf Hitler hoped by this means to arouse Soviet youth against the Jews and thus “get rid of powerful Soviet officials who are hostile to Russia’s present pro-German policy.”
