Background: This is a translation of part of a widely distributed
summary of Nazi doctrine about the Jews. The original version was published
in 1938 by Rudolf Kommoß. This is the revised version of 1942, taking
account of the war. It was not put out by the Nazi Party, but was approved
by it for use in party education. The pamphlet proposes deporting the
Jews to someplace like Madagascar, though by 1942 the real Nazi intentions
were more deadly.
The source: Karl Baumböck, Juden machen Weltpolitik
(Berlin: Propaganda-Verlag Paul Hochmuth, 1942). It is Nr. 16 of the series
The Jews in World Politics
by Karl Baumböck
Summary: The pamphlet runs 32 pages. The first sections
cover Jewish history from ancient to modern times, and end with
the claim that Germany, the Soviet Union, and the United States
are the three centers of the Jews.
I take up the translation with the last three sections.

Jewish World Policies Jewish World Leadership
We have discussed the centers of world Jewish power. The unified
plan is clear. That leads necessarily to the question: Is there
some form of world-wide Jewish leadership that carries out this
There are a series of familiar international Jewish organizations: the
Alliance Israélite Universelle, the Independent Order of B’nai
Briss [sic], the various
Zionist agencies (e.g., the Jewish Agency), the international Jewish boycott
organizations against Germany, the American Jewish Joint Consultative
Council to name only a few. All of these organizations promote
Jewish world power policies in some way. How they relate to each other,
which are the most significant, and whether there are secret connections
and a central leadership, and where that leadership might be, are subordinate
questions. Whether or not there is an organized Jewish government recognized
by all the Jews is less important that the fact that there is a unified
and conscious Jewish desire for world power. This is proved by a variety
of political events that are taking place in plain sight today.
What Does World Jewry Want Today?
We have already discussed the fundamental aims of World Jewry.
Their present activities are determined by the tactical situation.
What does the situation look like today? Under the leadership
of National Socialism, the German people have eliminated one
of Jewry’s three pillars. In many other countries, people are
also beginning to wake up and see through the Jewish plans for
domination. Jewry is therefore doing all in its power to defeat
these awakening nations and to force them to give up their new
racially-oriented policies. World Jewry is more united today
than ever before. They build hate against the awakening peoples
with all the resources at their disposal. They depend most heavily,
as we have shown, on world Bolshevism and world democracy. With
ice-cold, devilish calculation, they unleashed a new world war
that they hoped would defeat the national-authoritarian nations.
After defeating these nations, the way would once again be open
to establish Jewish domination of the remaining nations. The
insane goal of World Jewry remains ruling all the nations by
controlling their government organs, their territory, their money,
and all their goods.
We know that they will not achieve their goal.
Jewry will not defeat the awakening nations, but rather the example
of these nations will finally awaken the people who still sleep
under “democratic” or Bolshevist rule. That will be
the time to finally solve the Jewish question. As Reichsleiter
Alfred Rosenberg said in his speech on the Jewish question to
diplomats and the world press on 7 February 1939, this can only
occur by removing the Jews from all the nations where they have
lived as parasites and transporting to them to a sufficiently
large, uninhabited area suitable for colonization.
How little Jewry has understood the gravity of its situation,
threatened by the racial awakening of the nations, is shown by
its reaction to the emigration question. Jewry wants Palestine.
In order to make it possible for the Jews of every nation to
move to one place? Not at all. Such a thing is impossible. Palestine
could hold only a small percentage of the Jews. The 400,000 Jews
who currently live there are surrounded by 900,000 Arabs (with
more than 30 million Arabs in surrounding countries!). Even if
in violation of all principles of justice the Palestinian Arabs
now living there were forced out to make room for the Jews, it
would be impossible for a significant part of the world’s Jews
to move there.
As Alfred Rosenberg pointed out in his speech, Jewry is promoting
the Palestine project for entirely different reasons. It wants
to establish a center of power that will provide Jews remaining
in those other countries a valuable legal and governmental base.
A relatively small, purely Jewish state in Palestine would provide
the powerful Jewish groups in other nations with the status of
a respectable minority, the right of asylum, diplomatic representation,
and similar benefits. It is not a satisfactory solution to the
Jewish question, since it leaves the Jews to continue their parasitic
existence among the other nations, and indeed gives them new
The Jews have no serious intention of establishing colonies.
That would not be difficult for a people of 17 million, or perhaps
twice that number if one includes all who are racially Jewish.
They have vast resources, and have already made major strides
toward their goal of dominating the nations. It would not be
difficult for them to secure a suitable territory. That would
be a worthy goal for world Jewish capital. But the rich and powerful
Jews of the Bolshevist clique of despots, or in the huge trusts
in the USA or the international banks in England and many other
countries feel too comfortable to undertake such a difficult,
“uneconomic” endeavor. It hardly seems necessary to
go to the trouble of bringing all Jews together in one place.
Developments will force them in that direction, however. One
day there will be only one escape, a single honest way to solve
the Jewish question. Then for the first time in 3,000 years,
the Jew will have his own land where, in the words of his own
story of creation, he can live “by the sweat of his brow,”
even if he had previously thought that to be a disgrace.
There is enough room on the earth for the Jews. A number of
possibilities have already been mentioned: Kenya in the British
Empire is two and a half times the size of England, and only
18,000 whites, some Indians and Arabs, and 3.1 million blacks
live there. Rhodesia is three times as large as England, but
only 10,000 Europeans and one and a half million Blacks live
there. British Guyana is a large and fruitful land of the size
of Yugoslavia. It is still almost entirely unsettled. Large parts
of Australia are still uninhabited. French Madagascar is another
possibility, and there are others as well. Without going into
all the details, it is clear that the question of finding a suitable
place for the Jews depends only on their own desire and that
of their protectors. That desire is lacking. The future of World
Jewry depends on its bowing one day to the pressures of the situation.
The Decisive Battle has Begun!
Our goal is not to predict the future. We see things as they
have developed so far, and evaluate the forces currently in motion.
These forces, however, already exclude some “solutions”
to the Jewish question. There is no longer any hope of stopping
the awakening of the nations or of defeating the authoritarian
If International Finance Jewry within and outside of Europe
succeeds in plunging the nations once again into a world war,
the result will not be the Bolshevization of the world and the
victory of Jewry, but rather the annihilation of the Jewish race
The Führer gave the Jews a clear warning with these words
on 30 June 1939. International Jewry has succeeded in plunging
humanity into a new world war, but the results of the vast battle
so far have made it clear that the Jewish string pullers have
miscalculated this time. Jewish dominance of Europe has been
broken and will never return. Jewish world policies in the old
manner are no longer acceptable to the rest of the world. They
must fail. The result of the current vast struggle will not be
the establishment of Jewish control of the world, but rather
just new order in which all constructive nations will cooperate.
