Nazi ‘expert’ Turns Guns on League

May 5, 1935
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The League of Nations is nothing but a Jewish institution, Col. Ulrich Fleischhauer, the Nazi “expert,” told the Berne court today in the course of his testimony on the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion.”

Despite the fact that it was expected that Fleischhauer would testify for one day only, he failed to conclude his testimony today, the fourth day he has occupied the stand, and he will continue tomorrow.


The entire afternoon was devoted by the Nazi “expert” to arguments in which he attempted to prove that “Bolshevism is an expression of the Talmudic spirit.” Stalin, he said, is the servant of the Jews.

In denouncing the League of Nations as a “Jewish organ,” Col. Fleischhauer also asserted that the International Bible Students’ Organization is “an organ of the Jewish secret world government.” The latter, he said, is identical with the spirit of the “Protocols.”


Discussing the charge by the prosecution that the “Protocols” is trashy literature, the Nazi “expert” denied that the “Protocols” are obscene. “Any State which has not fallen under Jewish domination must not prohibit the dissemination of the ‘Protocols’,” he declared.

Col. Fleischhauer also charged the Jews with responsibility for the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand of Sarajevo which led to the World War. The Jews, he said, had manipulated this assassination in order to provoke a war which should give them a chance to capture the power in Germany and dominate the world.
