Yellow Badge for Jews is Retaliation Against America, Nazis Say

In an attempt to combat the dissatisfaction prevailing among many Germans in Berlin over the yellow badge imposed upon the Jews in Germany last week, Nazi officials have started a whispering campaign explaining that the Yellow Mogen David was introduced for Jews in Germany in retaliation for the fact that every German citizen in America must wear a Nazi swastika on his left breast.

The campaign at the same time serves to arouse the Germans against the United States by implying that German citizens are persecuted in America as Jews are in Germany.
