Reich Bias Ascribed to East Europe Jews

Download PDF for this date

It is all the fault of the East European Jews that there is anti-Semitism in Germany today, the Preussische Zeitung asserts in an article apparently intended to divide German Jewry by setting the native-born Jews against the East European Jewish residents.

“If Germany’s eastern borders had been kept closed before the War and after the War, there would be no Jewish problem in Germany today,” it says. “It is all the result of the invasion of Germany by the uncivilized hordes from Eastern Europe that there is anti-Semitism in present-day Germany.”
