Rosenberg Warns Britain Against Boycott Results

The British attitude is the chief factor in whether or not the Jewish campaign for an anti-German boycott will continue, declares Alfred Rosenberg, head of the Nazi Party’s foreign affairs department, writing in the Voelkischer Beobachter, Hitler’s own newspaper.

Admitting that “execution of the Jewish world boycott must lead to a weakening of Germany’s buying power,” Rosenberg warns that this will simultaneously and directly affect British exports.

“Combatting the boycott, therefore, is not only in the German interests, but also to the interest of the British,” he declares. “In addition, there is the fact that if Germany breaks down eventually, all other countries will feel the effect.”

Rosenberg expresses the hope that Great Britain will not follow the anti-German policy which he asserts France is stimulating for the next League of Nations session.
