Newark Woman Admits Subsidies for Nazi Cause

Download PDF for this date

Mrs. Madge Peer, who resides at the Hotel Douglas here and who claims to be of American Revolutionary stock, admitted today that she had sent a $25 contribution to the Nazi Camp Wille und Macht at Bridgetown.

“You may also be interested to know,” she smirked, “that I send $100 every Christmas to Adolf Hitler. No, I have never met the man, but I believe he has saved Germany from ‘Jewish Communism,’ and deserves support for that reason.”

Mrs. Peer believes the camp is a “fine thing to combat radical and subversive movements which threaten to undermine our government.”

“I would send my own son there if I had one that age,” she said.
