Download PDF for this date

The Bible was pointed at as proof of Jewish usury by Dr. Johannes von Leers, member of the Nazi party, at a gathering of Storm Troopers, special Hitler guards and rank and file of the party at the Wilmersdorf Tennis Hall.

“We do not wish to harm the Jews,” the speaker continued. “We do not begrudge them a homeland in which they can settle, but we have one wish, and that is that this land is far away from ours.”
