December 21, 1942
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Nazi Ministry of Propaganda, which has for bidden the publication in Germany and the occupied countries of the declaration of the Allied Nations on the Nazi massacres of Jews, today began disseminating statements abroad terming the declaration “a bit of typical British-Jewish atrocity propaganda.”

At the same time the Nazi press in Germany denounced the so-called British American atrocities in territories occupied by the Allied armies. These reports are aimed at counteracting the effects which the declaration may have on those persons in Germany who learn about it despite Nazi censorship.

The official Nazi news agency today sent out a report to newspapers in neutral countries saying that “the joint declaration is taken in Berlin political quarters as best corroboration of the German thesis that the governments of Washington, London, and Moscow depend to an exceptionally large extent on the political wishes of Jewry.”
