Dutch Nazis Finding Difficulty in Selling Anti-semitism to Netherlanders

Download PDF for this date

The difficulty being encountered by the Dutch Nazis in their campaign to sell anti-Semitism to the people of the Netherlands was strikingly indicated in a broadcast by Ernst Veerhoeve propaganda chief of the Mussertists, the Dutch Nazis heard today.

Answering queries by listeners as to why the Mussert party has recently intensified its anti-Jewish activities, Veerhoeve went to great lengths in attempting to explain the political necessity for the anti-Jewish drive without admitting that it was adopted solely as a result of German pressure. He declared that his listeners’ questions almost sounded like a “reproach,” and concluded by promising that in further broadcasts he would justify the anti-Semitic policy of his party.
