Adolph Hitler was compared today With Haman, the Persian minister of ancient times who plotted to massacre the Jews, in an article appearing in the Nazi paper Judenkenner.

“Both Hitler and Haman are leaders with a profound knowledge of the Jews,” the Nazi paper says, adding that the Jews had better be careful about “the red flame of hatred against Hitler” because this flame may destroy them utterly.
