The Reich’s war on Jewry will not be confined to Germany’s boundaries, but will be pushed “until there is not a single Jew left on European territory,” Nazi ideologist Dr. Alfred Rosenberg warned today. In an address to a German student congress here, Dr. Rosenberg alleged that “international Jewry has declared war on Germany.”

“Certain foreign quarters,” he added, “of the same species as those we long ago mastered within our own country, today think they can order or advise us to be more moderate. But whereas we formerly declared that the Jewish problem would not be resolved in Germany until there was not a Jew left on German territory, we declare openly today that the Jewish question will not be settled in Europe until there is not a single Jew left on European territory”
