Background: This September 1941 article from Julius Streicher’s
Der Stürmer appeared two months after the invasion of Russia.
The Nazis were launching a major anti-Semitic campaign, including accusations
that the Jews of the world planned to destroy the entire German people.
This article focuses on the work of one Theodore N. Kaufman, an American
Jew who had proposed to sterilize the entire German population. His proposal
was not taken seriously by anyone but the Nazis, who found it a major
propaganda opportunity. See, for example, the widely distributed Nazi
pamphlet The War Aim of World Plutocracy.

The Battle with the Devil:
Pan-Jewry Reveals its Destructive
by Julius Streicher
Nature and eductation make a good or a bad person. One of the characteristics
of a good person is that he believes something bad only when he can see
it with his own eyes. The thinking of those who have an interest in presenting
the Jews as God’s chosen people depends on the good will of good people.
Thus millions believed in the past, and some do even today, the story
of Mt. Sinai, where Moses, the Jewish leader, received the Ten Commandments,
supposedly for the good of all humanity. Only by seeing the events of
today has Gentile humanity realized that this was a mistake that enabled
the Jews to carry out their misdeeds unhindered up to the present. The
Jewish law book the “Talmud” (Schabbath, 89 u) expresses with
brutal openness what Sinai really means:
“Sinai is a mountain on which Moses received from the
God Jahwe the Jewish laws. The hatred of the Jews for all other peoples
of the earth spread from this mountain.”
Deuteronomy 7:16 expresses that command to hate that Moses received at
Sinai from the Jewish God Jahwe. It says:
“You will destroy all the peoples of the earth, whom Jahwe
will give into your hands. You shall have no mercy on them.”
[Not an accurate citation of the verse.]
The Jewish spiritual leaders of today, the rabbis, have ensured that
to this day the Jewish people is educated in this hatred which the God
Jahwe ordained through Moses on Mt. Sinai. The rabbis have made this hatred
the foundation of what the Jews call their religion. The Frankfurt Selichoth (a Jewish law book), page 715, includes this prayer that the Jews in their
synagogues have used to call down the curse of their God Jahwe on Gentile
“Bring the worst wars to the homes of the Gentiles. Infect
then with smallpox and punish them in your anger and fury. . . . Destroy
their kings through war and take revenge upon them. Drive their heads
to the ground in your fury!”
Two decades ago, the Stürmer began to educate the German
people, and also other peoples, with fanatic devotion that just as in
biblical times, today the Jews are still filled with unlimited hatred
of all Gentiles, wishing to destroy the world. It encountered pitying
smiles. Today, however, one does not need to believe the prophecies of
misfortune, for one can see them with his own eyes. Honest people are
beginning to say openly that the Stürmer was right in
what is repeatedly said. Today, millions of German men serving as soldiers
in battle against Bolshevism see the results of Jewry’s hatred. And these
millions of German men who are experiencing the results of Jewish hatred
in their battle against Bolshevism do not see the recently released demands
of Theodore N. Kaufmann (sic), a Jew living in America, as the
crazy thinking of insane Jewish brain. Because of the knowledge they have
gained in fighting Bolshevism, they see the Jew Kaufmann’s demands as
an expression of the hatred that dwells in every Jew, a hatred that would
come to expression were the Jews to succeed, with their democratic accomplices
in England and America, in winning the war. And what are the Jew Kaufmann’s
demands, which have now become known to the entire world? He writes in
his book Germany Must Perish, published by the Arguyte (sic)
Press in New York that Germany must forever perish in this great new war.
Although he is a member of a race that committed mass murder even in antiquity
(Egypt, Canaan, Persia, etc.), and used mass murder to enslave the Russian
people on the way to dominating them, he believes that mass murder can
be avoided in destroying the German people. Such a method “would
be inconsistent with the ethical principles of civilization.” As
a spokesman for World Jewry, the Jew Theodore N. Kaufmann has chosen a
method to destroy the German people that is indeed slower and less bloody,
but still thorough: sterilization, the destruction of the ability to bear
children. He writes:
“There remains then but one mode of ridding the world
forever of Germanism — and that is to stem the source from which
issue those war-lusted souls, by preventing the people of Germany from
ever again reproducing their kind. This modern method, known to science
as Eugenic Sterilization, is at once practical, humane and thorough.
Sterilization has become a byword of science, as the best means of ridding
the human race of its misfits: the degenerate, the insane, the hereditary
When one realizes that such health measures as vaccination
and serum treatments are considered as direct benefits to the community,
certainly sterilization of the German people cannot but be considered
a great health measure promoted by humanity to immunize itself forever
against the virus of Germanism. The population of Germany, excluding
conquered and annexed territories, is about 70,000,000, almost equally
divided between male and female. To achieve the purpose of German extinction
it would be necessary to only sterilize some 48,000,000 — a figure
which excludes, because of their limited power to procreate, males over
60 years of age, and females over 45.
Concerning the males subject to sterilization the army groups,
as organized units, would be the easiest and quickest to deal with.
Taking 20,000 surgeons as an arbitrary number and on the assumption
that each will perform a minimum of 25 operations daily, it would take
no more than one month, at the maximum, to complete their sterilization.
Naturally the more doctors available, and many more than the 20,000
we mention would be available considering all the nations to be drawn
upon, the less time would be required. The balance of the male civilian
population of Germany could be treated within three months. Inasmuch
as the sterilization of women needs somewhat more time, it may be computed
that the entire female population of Germany could be sterilized within
a period of three years or less. Complete sterilization of both sexes,
and not only one, is to be considered necessary in view of the present
German doctrine that so much as one drop of true German blood constitutes
Of course, after compete sterilization there will cease to
be a birth rate in Germany. At the normal death rate of 2% per annum,
German life will diminish at the rate of 1,500,000 yearly. Accordingly
in the span of two generations, that which cost millions of lives and
centuries of useless effort, namely, the elimination of Germanism and
its carriers, will have been accomplished fact.”
The Jew Kaufmann has thought out every last detail of his sterilization
plan. He makes the following proposals:
1. The German army will be immediately and totally disarmed,
and all weapons will be removed from German territory.
2. All German facilities and industrial plans will be placed
under strong guard. All German workers will be replaced by workers from
3. The German army will be divided into groups that will be
segregated in strictly separated regions and sterilized.
4. The civilian population, women as well as men, will be organized
within given areas and also sterilized.
5. After sterilization, the German army will be divided into
work brigades and used to rebuild destroyed cities.
6. Germany will be partitioned and its territory given to neighboring
7. Germans will not be allowed to travel beyond the established
borders until the completion of sterilization.
8. The German population of the partitions will be forced to
learn the language of their new country. Within a year, the publication
of all books, newspapers and announcements in German will be prohibited,
as will broadcasts in German and the teaching of the German language.
9. The only Germans exempt from sterilization will be those
with relatives in the victorious nations who will undertake financial
responsibility for their emigration and support, as well as moral responsibility
for their actions.
It is impossible to say more clearly to the German people what the Jew
Theodore N. Kaufmann says about this second great war: By destroying the
German people, the Jew wants to stop up the spring from which, since the
beginning, the world has always found its creative blood, the source of
all that is beautiful, good and noble. By destroying the German people,
the Jew wants to wipe out the core of Germandom, the source from the very
beginning of time of the human strength that preserved it from being ruined
by the Jews. The war the German people are fighting today is a holy war.
It is a war against the devil. The German people must win this war if
the devil is to die and humanity is to live.
