Federal Attorney of Berlin Court Charged with Anti-semitic Propaganda

Download PDF for this date

A Social Democratic deputy in the Bundestag has called on the Bonn Interior Ministry to dismiss the Chief Federal Attorney of the Berlin Administrative Court on the grounds that during the Nazi regime he wrote anti-Semitic propaganda and actively supported the Nazi “solution” of the “Polish and Jewish questions.”

The deputy, Dr. W. Menzel, charged that Dr. Harry Rosen von Hoewell in his writings, including a well known volume on German constitutional history, had advocated “special” treatment of the “Eastern people” because of the “special mission of Germany in the East.” Among his other assists to the Nazi propaganda war on the Jews was his publication of the faithful standby that the “free masons and the Jews are the true rulers of Germany.”
