Will Recognize Jews As National Minority when Isolated in Reich Territory

Download PDF for this date

The Jews of Germany will be recognized by the German government as a national minority when they are isolated in a special territory within Germany, Alfred Rosenberg, foreign minister of the Nazi party, declared in addressing an election meeting of Nazi youth in Berlin.

The fight against Germany abroad is being instigated only by the Jews, Rosenberg maintained, bitterly attacking the League of Nations for dealing with the Jewish question.

The Angriff, leading Nazi daily, of which Dr. Goebbels, the propaganda chief, is one of the editors, declared in an editorial today that no matter what results the Jewish agitation against Germany may bring, they will not induce Germany to change her attitude to the Jews.

Events in Palestine are being used by the Nazi press for anti-Jewish agitation in Germany and in proving that the Nazis are justified in forcing the Jews out of Germany.

The Voelkischer Beobachter declared that the events in Palestine best prove that the Jews are parasites and warns England against a Moslem uprising which may spread as far as India, according to the Beobachter.

The Berliner Tageblatt, in an editorial, expressed the original view that since the United States and the leading European countries have taken an interest in the Jewish problem by cooperating in the appointment of the high commissioner for refugees, it would have been logical for them to give the new high commissioner the power to investigate the possibility of Jewish immigration into Palestine.
