Professor Albert Einstein is nothing but a “Bolshevist agent,” Dr. Alfred Rosenberg, head of the foreign affairs division of the Nazi party and editor of the Voelkischer Beobachter, leading Nazi paper, declared today. Dr. Rosenberg maintained that the Nazis favor freedom of science.

“A certain misunderstanding has been caused,” he said, “because many Jewish scientists as well as a number of misled Germans have equated freedom of scientific research with freedom to calumniate the German people.

“If a certain Mr. Einstein professes that the white race has no right to claim superiority over the Negroes, then such a deviation is not freedom of research, the Nazi leader stated.
