White Bread is a “jewish Invention” Nazi Radio Explains to Undernourished Germans

Unable to explain the complete disappearance of white bread which cannot be secured even by Nazi soldiers in hospitals, the Nazi radio this week stated that white flower is actually nothing but a Jewish invention. “The baking of white bread,” the Nazi broadcaster explained, “was promoted by Jews both for speculative reasons and also for the purpose of undermining the health of the German people. Before the Jews settled in Germany, the people generally ate whole wheat bread. For the last century, however, the Jews pushing themselves in between the producer and the consumer, fostered the production of ‘dead flour’ which is deprived of the main nutritive value.”
