Der Angriff, the Goebbels organ, has made the sensational discovery that the Jews of Germany are more generous donors to Nazi unemployment funds than “Aryans.”

In a featured article today, the result of an investigation by Der Angriff’s star reporter, the information is revealed that Jews are contributing between ten and fifteen times more than “Aryans” towards the unemployment welfare funds organized by the Nazi regime. The investigation was conducted in Berlin’s highly fashionable West Side.


Fourteen homes of wealthy commercial leaders were visited by the reporter to establish their contributions to the above funds. Of these fourteen, the reporter discovered to his surprise, a large majority not only refused to contribute to the Nazi relief funds, but even went so far as to refuse to permit the Nazi collectors to enter their homes.

He found that a few of them contribute only a monthly average of one or two marks. The only one contributing as much as fifteen marks monthly is a Jew.

“This Jew,” Der Angriff’s reporter adds, “is not only paying an average of fifteen marks a month towards the Nazi unemployment fund, but is easily approachable by Nazi collectors for other contributions as well.”
