Nazi Defeat Means Jews Will Mercilessly Massacre Germans, Hitler’s Organ Warns

Download PDF for this date

Germans and sympathizers of Nazi-Germany in Axis countries are warned in the Voelkischer Beobechter, Hitler’s chief organ, that should Germany lose the present war, the entire European continent will be drowned in a flood of blood through pogroms which will be carried out by “revengeful Jews.”

“Should the Jews ever again succeed in becoming the rulers of Europe, then blood will run from one end of the continent to the other,” the leading Nazi newspaper writes. The paper attributes the present difficulties of the German armies on the Soviet front to “Jewish hatred.” The Soviet scorched earth policy is “a policy to destroy anything that does not fall under Jewish yoke,” the article says.

In order to make its warning to the Germans more impressive, the Voelkischer Beobachter publishes a report of the following incident which allegedly took place in Rumania. A Rumanian soldier, the Nazi paper relates, offered his portion of bread to a hungry Jewish child. The mother of the child, however, threw the bread away furiously telling the Rumanian soldier that he need not have any pity, because the Jews too will display no pity. “When the wheel turns around, there will be nothing left of you Rumanians to pity,” the Jewish mother of the starving child is quoted as saying! “The moral of this small incident should be clear to every German,” the Nazi organ points out. “Should the Jews ever again come to power the European continent will be one huge river of blood.”
