400 Wealthiest Jews Arrested in German-held Italy, Nazi Press Reports

German newspapers reaching here today report that among the thousands of Jews arrested in Italy approximately 400 were in possession of over a million lire each. These included 82 whose possessions were valued at 100 million lire each. The total value of Jewish property confiscated in the German-controlled part of Italy is given in the German press as twelve billion lire and not twelve billion as reported several days ago over the German radio.

The Rome radio today devoted a lengthy broadcast to quoting from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion during which it demanded that “no quarter be given to the internal Jewish enemy, who is destroying the social hierarchy and the welfare of the community, just as no quarter is given to the external foe.”
