Germans in Reich Told They Must Fight if They Don’t Want to Return Jewish Property

Germans in the Reich and in Nazi-occupied countries are warned by the Nazi press that if Germany loses the war they will have to surrender their economic positions to the Jews.

An article in the Angriff which reached here today and which is one of many similar articles appearing in the Nazi press, urges the Germans “to remember” that they have acquired Jewish property which they will be forced to return should the Axis powers be defeated in the war. In this way, the Nazi Ministry of Propaganda aims to instill in the Germans the fear that as a conquered people, each German will personally feel the burden of reparations “since practically every German benefitted from the ousting of the Jews from economic life.”
