Anti-Semitism is Germany’s most potent “secret weapon,” Robert Ley, Nazi labor chief, writes in Der Angriff, personal newspaper of German Propaganda Minister Goebbels, which reached here today. In an article entitled Hitler’s Secret Weapon,” Ley says that “Judah must die to save humanity.”

German newspapers reaching here reveal that there are still some Jews in Germany – and that these are attempting to flee the Reich. The papers report that recently 24 Jews were captured when attempted to cross the Swiss border hidden in a freight car carrying charcoal.
