Nazis ‘aryanize’ 10 Commandments

Download PDF for this date

A new “Aryan” version of the Ten Commandments was issued today by Professor Hausner, leader of the Nazi Christians who reject the Old Testament because of its Jewish origin. The new fifth commandment orders the “maintenance of racial purity.”

The movement headed by Professor Hausner is called the New German Faith Movement and advocates the scrapping of everything in Christianity that had its origin in Judaism.

The group also proposes the restoration of the old tribal Teutonic gods as objects of worship and the cleansing of the German religion of all “traces of Jewish influence.”
