Envelopes Used by Nazis for Anti-jewish Propaganda

Download PDF for this date

Backs of envelopes sent abroad are being used by the Germans for anti-British and anti-Jewish propaganda, it was disclosed today.

Envelopes reaching Amsterdam are stamped with large yellow caricatures of British War Secretary Leslie Hore-Belisha examining conscripts. An accompanying inscription reads: “Great Britain is Israel. Abraham is the father of the British race. The Jew Hore-Belisha is a great man in Britain.” Many of the letters thus stamped were addressed to Netherlands Jews.
