Background: A regular feature of Julius Streicher’s Der Stürmer
in the 1930’s was a column of denunciations sent in by readers. Although
the Stürmer’s prime business was attacking Jews, these items
generally were complaints about Germans who had friendly relations with
their fellow Jewish citizens. Over 6,000 people were attacked by name
and town between 1934 and 1939, after which the column disappeared, since
there were few Jews left in Germany. This is a typical column from 1935.
The names of those having friendly relations with Jews are given in bold
typeface, along with their towns. The intention was to intimidate them,
and make them known to the Stürmer’s readers. For more information
on the Stürmer and its editor, see my book on Julius
The source: “Briefkasten,” Der Stürmer,
#19/1935, p. 10.
Derschlag (Rhineland): If the national newspaper for
barbers, The German Barber, wants to be an
organ guided by the National Socialist spirit, it will have to
give up on Jewish advertisements.
Neustadt (Glewe): The Adler & Oppenheim leather
factory is Jewish. In a typical Talmudic trick, it gave its workers
a Christmas present that was essentially paid for by pay deductions.
But the more thoughtful managers and supervisors could have taken
the opportunity to prove their National Socialist attitudes through
Schweighausen (Baden): The S.A. leader was entirely
correct when he took the S.A. uniform away from the Jewish
lackey, teacher Otto Söppert. The fact that the Catholic
priest Halter refuses to contribute to the Winter Relief
because of the Stürmer is the epitome of modern-day
Düsseldorf: We hear that the full-blooded Jew Carsch
is still employed by the Seifert firm, and gets a share of the
profits. Seifert is therefore not Aryan!
Jülich: It is disgraceful that a group of officials
and businessmen in Jülich still get together with Jews and
go bowling. Look into it, Mr. County Inspector!
Kulmbach: We hear that the David Memorial is
causing discussion and could lead to ill-considered actions.
Hopefully the Kulmbachers will not be carried away.
Biblis (Hesse): It is deeply disgraceful that the gentlemen
Georgi, Enghof, Knell, Deckerle, and Drackert III
are Jewish lackeys. But when S.A. Man Franz Häuser
goes dancing with the Jewess Edel Fränkel, words
to describe the depravity fail. Take off the brown shirt!
Bremen: It is true that the brothers Hirschfeld have
a women’s clothing shop on Obernstraße in Bremen. They
have branches in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne, Hanover, Lübeck,
etc. The Jew Hirschfeld causes trouble not only because
of his criminally intimate relationships with his employees,
but also because of shady accounting practices. He sent out bills
to the women’s husbands that were too high, and then returned
the overcharge to the “ladies.”
Hamm and Opfen (Sieg!): The rolling mill master Gustav
Hütt should be ashamed. From pure greed, he took the
Jewish rabbi Kurt Schreiner into his house. He even said
that he liked the Jew as much as any German.
Merxheim (Nahe): If the NS Merchant’s Association member
C. gets his liquours from the Jew Löb in Andernach,
the matter should be energetically investigated by the relevant
Berleberg in W.: It is a disgrace that hereditary farmers
Georg Heinrich Saßmannshausen and Heinrich Dreisbach,
both from Birkenfeld, do business with the notorious Talmud Jew
and Nazi-hater Simon from Erndtebrück. That is how
these Jewish lackeys thank their Führer Adolf Hitler
for freeing them from Jewish serfdom!
Laasphe (Westphalia): The livestock dealer Sally
Gunzenhäuser, Wasserstraße 2, is not only an insolent
bigmouth, but also a notorious chaser of German women. We draw
the attention of the authorities to him, and warn our fellow
Roßbach (Wald): We hear that teacher Therese
Schricker in Wald is a BDM [the
Nazi organization for girls] leader in Wald! We cannot
believe that she chattered in this way to her students: “As
I was shopping a while ago in Schocken [a
Jewish-owned department store], I saw the Schifferfrauen...”
Hof in B.: You send us a picture from the Hofer Anzeiger,
#41. It shows among others County Leader Kuhr, Mayor Dr. Windler
and the Jew Regensburger. We presume that the two party
members were not entirely comfortable in such company.
Dr. R.C., Cologne: We have heard about this matter
from other sources as well. Counsuls of foreign states enjoy
the normal international protection. When they visit political
meetings and behave in an improper way, however, they cannot
complain if that is pointed out to them. After all, one cannot
tell by looking that someone is a counsul. And one should be
able to expect that a counsul has the tact to behave as a guest
and that he avoids the danger of being called to task. We do
not believe that a German counsul abroad would behave in the
same provocative manner as the Swedish counsul did in Cologne.
R., Munich: The Stürmer has already
been informed that a Jew from Wiesbaden wants to buy the Simoni
firm on Ritter von Epp Square in Munich. We hope that the removal
of the Wiesbaden Jew to Munich will be hindered. It is high time
that one finally puts a stop to Jews moving to Munich.
