Ludwig Kramer, once a director in the Krupp armament works at Essen, now retired, approves of Hitler and thinks he will solve all Germany’s troubles.

In an interview during a visit to his son here, Kramer said: “The Jewish question in Germany is grossly exaggerated in this country. It is seldom talked about in Germany and most of the old, established families of Jewish origin hold the same positions as they did before.”

He reiterated the usual Nazi explanation that the trouble was started by immigrant Jews, mostly those from Galicia.
