Background: On 1 September 1941 all Jews remaining in Germany were forced to wear the Yellow Star when in public. In late September 1941, the Nazis released a remarkable mass pamphlet based on a book published in the United States titled Germany Must Perish! The book proposed the partitioning of Germany and the sterilization of its population. The author, Theodore N. Kaufman, was an American Jew of no influence. The pamphlet, titled The War Aim of World Plutocracy, included excerpts from Kaufman’s book. In early November 1941, this four-page flyer was released. It justified the Yellow Star by reminding Germans of Kaufman’s pamphlet, which supposedly was the common goal of “World Jewry.” Howard K. Smith’s 1942 book Last Train from Berlin (p. 197) states that every German got copies of the pamphlet along with the monthly ration card.
The source: The copy of the flyer I saw is in the holdings of the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek in Leipzig.

Page 2: “Remember what the Jew has done to our people.
Now for the first time, World Jewry openly says what it wants:
“Germany must perish!”
80 million culturally advanced, hard-working, and decent German women, men, and children are to be exterminated. That is what the Jew Theodore Nathan Kaufman, President of the American Peace Union, says openly in his book Germany Must Perish. He is the spokesman for World Jewry.
“Germany must perish forever from this earth! And, fortunately, as we shall now come to see, that is no longer impossible of accomplishment.”
That is what the Jew Kaufman wrote.
You can read about his solution in the pamphlet:
The War Goal of World Plutocracy
If you read this pamphlet,
Our people is waging the greatest war of its history. Our soldiers risk their life every day in this battle.
The German army is ensuring that the World Jewry’s terrible plan, proclaimed to the world by the Jew Kaufman, will never become reality.
Page 4: You must ensure through your behavior that Jewry never again has even the slightest influence on our people.
Know the real enemy!
