Violent Anti-jewish Campaign Resumed in Reich

Download PDF for this date

An anti-Jewish campaign reminiscent of the campaigns conducted by the Nazis in the early days of their coming to power has now been started throughout the Reich by order of Joseph Goebbels, propaganda minister, it was reported here today.

The report is substantiated by the German newspapers which reached Lisbon today from Berlin and other cities in the Reich. The entire Nazi press is utilizing the war against Soviet Russia to carry on its front pages atrocious anti-Jewish propaganda, including the obvious lies that Jews were helping the Soviets to shoot political prisoners prior to the retreat of Soviet forces from various towns.

Reports published in the Berliner Boersen Zeitung and in the Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung bear out the stories of the shooting by the Nazis of masses of Jewish civilians when they occupied the cities of Lemberg, Luck, Dubno and Rudni in Soviet Poland. The two leading Nazi newspapers carry long columns of descriptions how the advanced German troops “liquidated local Jewish Bolshevists” in these cities. Similar reports appear also in the Schwarze Korps, official Gestapo organ.

The Nazi radio broadcasted a blast today against Maxim Litvinoff, former Soviet Foreign Commissar. Terming him as “the Jew Litvinoff-Finkelstein”, the radio speaker said that Litvinoff’s broadcast in English this week from Moscow asking for British invasion into Nazi-occupied territories and praising Churchill’s statesmanship “reveals unequivocally the connection between Jewish bolshevism and Jewish-British plutocracy”.
