Download PDF for this date

Dr. Konrad Adenauer, West German Chancellor, in a radio broadcast to the nation, emphatically warned that any attempt to revive Nazism in Germany will be sternly dealt with. He added that, at present, resurgent Nazism does not exist in the country.

“If there are a few fanatical Hitlerites left, they are keeping their peace,” the Chancellor said. “Any attempt by them to form dangerous organizations will not be tolerated. The German people want no part of radicalism, either of the left or of the right,” Dr. Adenauer concluded.
