January 24, 1938

The Sunday Express reports, with front-page streamer headlines, a “Nazi split over Jew-baiting, declaring a “sensational split” has developed among Nazi leaders over anti-Semitism, resulting in the banning of a special edition of Julius Streicher’s Der Stuermer which demanded the death penalty for “race defilement.”

The ban marks the climax in a fight among Fuehrer Hitler, General Hermann Goering and Propaganda Minister Paul Joseph Goebbels on the question of a new campaign of exceptional severity against the Jews, the Express asserts.
