STOCKHOLM (May. 6)
The Nazi Government today issued an announcement in Berlin indicating its determination to continue its policy of exterminating the Jews in occupied countries and making it clear that it considers the annihilation of the Jews in Europe a major point in its war-program.
The announcement was issued through the Ministry of Propaganda for publication in the press abroad. It was included in the “Informations-Blaetter fuer die Ausslandspresse,” the news bulleting which is distributed to foreign correspondents as a source of authentic information.
“The Jewish question,” the announcement said, “is still in the center of interest in Germany. Nobody in the world should doubt Germany’s determination to solve this question forever without any compromise, and in a cold, dispassionate, relentless way.”
At the same time the Nazi Ministry of Propaganda today disseminated a report through its Transocean News Agency that in Budapest the Jewish population has in creased sixty percent during the year of 1942. This report is taken here to mean that the Nazi Government intends to start a campaign against the Jews of Hungary by pressing the Hungarian Government for increased anti-Jewish measures.
