FROM DER STUERMER
by Julius Streicher
THE MURDEROUS PEOPLE
...The Jews are under a terrible suspicion the world over. Who does not
know this, does not understand the Jewish problem. Anyone who merely sees the Jews, as
Heinrich Heine (Chaim Bueckburg) described them, "a tribe which secures its existence
with exchange and old trousers and whose uniforms are long noses", is being misled.
But anyone who knows the monstrous accusation which has been raised against the Jews since
the beginning of time, will view these people in a different light. He will begin to see
not only a peculiar, strangely fascinating nation, but criminals, murderers, and devils in
human form. He will be filled with holy anger and hatred against these people.
The suspicion under which the Jews are held is murder. They are charged
with enticing Gentile children and Gentile adults, butchering them, and draining their
blood. They are charged with mixing this blood into their mass's unleavened bread [sic]
and using it to practice superstitious magic. They are charged with torturing their
victims, especially the children, and during this torture they shout threats, curses, and
cast spells against the Gentiles. This systematic murder has a special name. It is called
The knowledge of Jewish ritual murder is thousands of years old. It is
as old as the Jews themselves. The Gentiles have passed the knowledge of it from
generation to generation, and it has been passed down to us through writings. It is known
of throughout the nation. Knowledge of ritual murder can be found even in the most
secluded rural villages. The grandfather tells his grandchildren, who pass it on to his
children, and his children's children, until we have inherited the knowledge today.
It is also befalling other nations. The accusation is immediately
raised loudly, anywhere in the world, where a body is found which bears the marks of
ritual murder. Historically, the accusation is raised only against the Jews. Hundreds and
hundreds of other races, tribes, and nations live on this earth, but no one has ever
attempted to accuse them of the planned murder of children for religious purposes. All
nations have hurled this accusation against the Jews, and many great men have confirmed
the accusation. Dr. Martin Luther writes in his book THE JEWS AND THEIR LIES: "They
stabbed and pierced the body of the young boy Simon of Trent. They have also murdered
other children...The sun never did shine on a more bloodthirsty and revengeful people as
they, who imagine themselves to be the people of God, and who desire to and think they
must murder and crush the heathen. Jesus Christ, the Almighty Preacher from Nazareth,
spoke to the Jews: 'Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will
do. He was a murderer from the beginning.'"
THE STRUGGLE OF DER STUERMER
The only newspaper in Germany, yes, in the whole world, which often
screams the accusation of ritual murder into the Jewish face is Der Stuermer. For more
than ten years Der Stuermer has led a gigantic battle against Judaism. This has caused Der
Stuermer to be under constant attack by the Jews. Dozens of times it has been confiscated
and prohibited. Its workers, most of all its editor Julius Streicher, have been dragged to
court hundreds of times. They were convicted, punished, and locked into prisons.
Der Stuermer has come to know the Jew from the confession which Dr.
Conrad Alberti-Sittenfeld, a Jew, wrote in 1899 in No. 12 of the magazine GESELLSCHAFT:
"One of the most dangerous Jewish qualities is brutal, direct, barbaric intolerance.
A worse tyranny cannot be practiced than that which the Jewish clique practices. If you
try to move against this Jewish clique they will, without hesitation, use brutal methods
to overcome you. Mainly the Jew tries to destroy his enemy in the mental area, by which he
takes his enemy's material substance away and undermines his civil reputation and
existence. The vilest of all forms of retaliation, the boycott, is characteristically
Der Stuermer has never been stopped. Just in Nuremberg alone there have
been fought dozens of Talmudic and ritual murder cases in the courts. Because of Jewish
protests the attention of the whole world was focused on these cases. Thereafter heavy
convictions followed. At first no judge had the guts to expose the Jewish problem.
Finally, in 1931, in a court case lasting from October 30th to November 4th, Der Stuermer
won its first legal victory. The jury found the following:
1. Der Stuermer is not fighting against the Jewish religion, but
against the Jewish race;
2. The Talmud and Schulchan Aruch are not religious books. They have no
right to be protected under the religious paragraphs [of the law];
3. The laws of the Talmud which are quoted and published in Der
Stuermer are exact quotations from the Talmud;
4. The laws of the Talmud are in harsh contradiction to German morals;
5. The Jews of today are being taught from the Talmud. With this
verdict Der Stuermer brought about the first big breach in the Jewish administration of
justice, which was given the job before the National Socialist revolution of protecting
Judaism and the government. The Jews, of course, became greatly agitated about it all. But
for Der Stuermer this success was an omen of victory yet to come.
Of course, Der Stuermer does not stop half way. It knows what must be
done. It is our duty to frustrate the gigantic Jewish murder plot against humanity. It is
our duty to brand this nation before the whole world, to uncover its crimes and to render
it harmless. It is our duty to free the world from this national pest and parasitic race.
Der Stuermer will fulfill its mission. It will light up the darkness with the truth which
shall rule the world. And it will always direct itself according to the following proverb:
"He who knows the truth and does not speak it is truly a miserable creature."
