2 Hitler Years Black Period, Congress Says

Download PDF for this date

The second anniversary of the Hitler regime was characterized yesterday in a statement issued yesterday by the Jewish Congress as “a day of the deepest sorrow not only to Germany and the victims of Nazism but of humiliation to the entire human race.”

The congress expressed the hope in its statement that the Reich “may yet free itself from the scourge which has come to ravage its life and to sully its honor in the sight of men.” Similar sentiments have been voiced by the organization at intervals since January 30, 1933, when Adolf Hitler was first named Chancellor by the late President von Hindenburg.


“The Nazism of Hitler Germany,” the statement declared, “constitutes a threat to the peace of mankind.”
