Background: This 1935 lead article
from Julius Streicher’s anti-Semitic newspaper Der Stürmer is
typical of the paper’s sexual content. Nearly every issue accused Jews
of various sexual crimes, often in more graphic detail than is given here.
The cartoon accompanying the article is titled “Legion of Shame.”
The caption beneath translates:
- Ignorant, lured by gold,
- They stand disgraced in Judah’s fold.
- Souls poisoned, blood infected,
- Disaster broods in their wombs.

Betrayed to Death by a Jew
by Fritz Fink
An empty car on a lonely path was found in midsummer of this
year in Schorfheide, near Werbelliner Lake. The bodies of a man
and a woman lay nearby. The doctor who was brought to the scene
determined that both had died from poison. They had taken opium
and Veronal. The authorities determined the identities of the
bodies. They were the 59-year-old Jew Paul Falckenstein
and the 25-year-old dancer Anny J. from Cologne. They
had traveled from Cologne to Berlin. There they rented a car.
They wrote farewell letters in Eberswalde to their acquaintances
in Cologne and Berlin.
newspapers carried big stories about a love drama at Werbelliner
Lake. They did not hesitate to give the name of the unhappy German
girl, but they intentionally kept quiet the name of the Jew.
The Jew Paul Falckenstein had had a relationship with
the dancer Anny J. for a long time. His wife knew about
it. Certain reporters asserted that the wife of the Jew Falckenstein
had refused to allow a divorce. In desperation over the situation,
and because marriage to the dancer Anny J. would forever
be impossible, Falckenstein decided to take his life.
The newspapers that reported in this way know nothing of the
Jew and his type. A Jew will not kill himself over a “Goy.”
A Jew is not capable of such great and deep love.
There was an entirely different reason for the Jew’s suicide. The Jew
Paul Falckenstein had things on his conscience that would have
landed him in prison within a few weeks. The Jew Falckenstein had
once owned the umbrella factory Jakobs & Grimm in Cologne.
After the National Socialist revolution, the umbrella factory Jakobs
& Grimm transformed itself into a corporation. Typical Jewish
chicanery transpired as the stock and ownership was arranged. A while
ago the firm ceased paying its bills. The relevant finance office examined
the company’s books. As the officials arrived, the Jew Falckenstein
hurriedly left the office. He traveled to Berlin and put an end to his
Jewish life at Schorfheide. The Jew Falckenstein did not take poison
because of a “Goy.” He was afraid of the law. The Jews thought
it a great service that he took a “Goy” along with him. How
the Jew Falckenstein must have lied to the girl to persuade her
to throw her young life away. Anny J. died thinking that she was
the victim of a great love. But she was betrayed to death by the Jew.
