Urges Seizure of All German Jews’ Property

Download PDF for this date

The salvation of Germany and the regeneration of its people depends on the complete suppression of the Jews of Germany, in the opinion of Herr Maurenbrecher, editor-in-chief of the anti-Semitic Deutsche Zeitung, who devotes a leading article to the question of ridding Germany of the Jews and Jewish influence.

Herr Maurenbrecher, formerly a socialist, proposes that the Jews be deprived of their citizenship rights, to be followed by their removal from the press, theatre, universities, government offices, parliament, banks, and the bourse.

The modern Hayman proposes as a further effective measure the seizure of Jewish fortunes in favor of the Gefman State Treasury.

Herr Maurenbrecher goes so far as to suggest that the repression of the Jews should be extended to such Christians even whose origin can be traced to some Jewish ancestor.
