Labor Front to Train Nazis in War on Bolshevism

Download PDF for this date

The German Labor Front announced tonight the launching of its “Winter offensive” with the opening on Oct. 19 of more than 120 courses to train officials in fighting “Jewish Bolshevism” in Germany and abroad along economic lines.

More than 100 persons have registered for each course, it was stated.

Charges that Jews were responsible for divisions in Germany’s economic life were made by Bernhard Kohler, director of the Economic and Political Department of the Nazi Party, addressing a Labor Front conference.

“The Jews are the ones who brought about the existing schism in German commerce as far as our national conscience is concerned,” he said, appealing to merchants to develop a “national conscience.”
