Bern (Feb. 24)
Adolf Hitler, in a manifesto broadcast today over the Berlin radio, reiterated his threat to exterminate all the Jews in Europe. He termed the Allied Nations a “Jewish world coalition” and devoted a substantial part of his proclamation to “the Jewish menace.”
“The present struggle will not end with the annihilation of Aryan mankind but with the extermination of the Jews in Europe,” the proclamation said. It was issued by Hitler on the occasion of the anniversary of the establishment of the Nazi Party, and was read by Secretary of State Herman Esser who said that Hitler himself is now on the Russian front.
