Reich Littered by Propaganda Shrieking ‘liar’

Distribution of anti-Semitic propaganda in Berlin and the rest of the country continued unabated today despite assurances by Nazi authorities that the anti-Jewish outbreaks on Kurfuerstendamm were instigated by elements “inimical to the State.”

In Berlin a manifesto was issued by the Judenkenner, the official Nazi anti-Semitic journal, saying that “the Jew lives on lies and dies of truth.”

This reference was apparently made in connection with sharp criticism voiced abroad against this week’s anti-Jewish riot in Berlin.

The manifesto was ordered posted in various factories and offices in Berlin. The order was issued by local Nazi “workers’ cells” leaders. The text of the manifesto reads:

“German National Comrade, do you know that the Jew lies to you, robs you, cheats you, and calls you ‘cattle’?

“Do you know that Jewish doctors slowly murder you, Jewish lawyers never help you get justice, Jewish food stores sell you rotten goods, Jewish butcher shops are dirtier than pig-sties?”
