Ninety thousand Jews have left Germany since Hitler came into power, according to an announcement which is made today by the Voelkischer Beobachter, Hitler’s chief organ.

The Nazi government has collected $25,000,000 in emigration taxes from the refugees who left Germany, the Beobachter discloses. In 1933, the emigration tax yielded to the government treasury 17,500,000 marks, or approximately $7,000,000. During the year 1934 the emigration tax yielded 45,000,000 marks, which is equivalent to $18,000,000.

10,000 ARE BACK

Of the 90,000 Jews who left Germany, 10,000 have returned, the chief Nazi organ reveals. The paper believes that the liquidation of the Jewish problem in Germany can be achieved through emigration only.

A new anti-Semitic organization, established by the Nazis as the Anti-Jewish World League, held its first mass meeting last night in Nuremberg. A unique feature of the new organization is that it will be led by a Frenchman named Jean Boissel. The meeting in Nuremberg was addressed by Boissel and by Julius Streicher.


“Jews will sooner or later be prevented from earning a livelihood in Germany,” the Nazi newspaper General Anzeiger, says today.

The elimination of Jewish children from German schools is urged by Dr. Gross, the head of the Racial Office in the National Socialist Party, in an article published by him in the Rote Erde of Dortmund. “A teacher of an alien race has now become an impossibility in Germany, but it is just as essential that the pupils whom the teacher has to instruct should constitute a racial unity,” Dr. Gross says, urging the complete segregation of all Jewish children.
