A solution of the Jewish question by bringing about the annihilation of the Jewish race is put forward by “Der Stuermer”. an anti-Semitic paper published in Nurenberg, quoting a decision of the United States Supreme Court, upholding the constitutionality of the Virginia state law providing for the sterilization of the feeble-minded to prevent the continuation of the stock.

The paper hails the court decision as pointing a way to a solution of the Jewish question in a simple way.

The perfidy of the anti-Semitic newspaper caused astonishment in Jewish circles here.

The paper writes: “In past centuries the German people attempted to protect themselves from the Jewish plague by placing the members of the alien race under special laws. Any contamination of German blood was thus made impossible. In our democratic age, the special laws were abolished, and the mixture of Jewish and German blood has reached astounding proportions. Due to this, the Teutonic, German blood is in danger of degeneration.

“The solution of the Jewish problem, therefore, becomes urgent. It is possible to bring about the solution in two ways, either through complete expulsion or through sterilization, as it is applied on the basis of the new American law. Enactment of a similar law in Germany must bring beneficial results,” the paper writes.
