Nazis Exploit Roosevelt’s Speech to Increase Their Anti-jewish Campaign

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish situation in Germany is expected to become even more precarious, Berlin correspondents of Swedish newspapers predicted today. The predictions are based on the blast of anti-Jewish propaganda released today in the Nazi press and over the Nazi radio stations, charging that the Jews are responsible for President Roosevelt’s speech on Navy Day.

Information reaching today from Berlin reveals that the Jewish emigration office which was closed down last week in Berlin was not the department maintained by the Reichsvereinigung of German Jews to facilitate Jewish emigration from Germany, but the office established by the German authorities through which Jews desiring to emigrate had to clear all the necessary papers. The office was located on Kurfuerstenstrasse in Berlin. It is not known why the office was suddenly closed down.
