This is an extract of a larger text published for German elementary and secondary schools, emphasizing the necessity for the German to place himself in relation to the Jew. This calls for understanding the biological traits of individual Jews. The Jewish people is a folk, not a race; it is composed of Near Eastern, Negroid and Oriental racial elements. The inclination of Jews for certain professions also underwrites their nature.
The qualities of the Jew, depicted in a textbook for German children.

Each German must understand the Jewish question. With sure vision, the writer Anacker predicted the bitter struggle against the "Red flood," and called for "the last reserves" in the decisive battle. In our own country, Red power ended as a result of the German revolution of 1933. Beyond our borders, however, the red plague still rages, attempting to corrupt other peoples and plunge them into misery and misfortune.
In our own land, we want to hold eternal watch. That is particularly true for you, German youth! You, too, must fight the battle and must therefore know the destroyer of all ethnic life: the Jew!
Development of Jewry. The Jews are not a race, as is often thought. The Jewish people is a racial mixture from parts of the Near Eastern and Asian races. The genetic, physical, and spiritual characteristics of the Jew are so foreign and different to us that any association with a Jew must be rejected by any German with sound instincts, even by the smallest, simplest child. This is particularly clear in areas where Germans do not live, but instead visit farmers for commercial reasons. The simple person in the countryside knows the Jew only from livestock trading or peddling. The trading instinct is in the Jew’s blood. The first Jews came to the Germanic regions during the time of the Romans. At first, they were only guests. But they were masters at understanding how to exploit the nature of their host people. As soon as the Jew was recognized as a bloodsucker and parasite among the people, he was expelled from the people’s community. During the Middle Ages, they were kept in strictly separate Jewish districts (ghettos), and had to wear distinctive clothing (pointed Jewish cap). Even during the age of Frederick the Great, one saw the Jew as a member of a foreign race, and Goethe, too, was outraged that the ban on marriage between Jews and Christians was to be lifted. The ghetto walls fell for the Jews during the French Revolution, with its notion of "equality." Following that example, the liberal statesman Hardenberg instituted the "emancipation" of the Jews, granting them independence and equality within the German host people. Suddenly, the Jew was a citizen. The Jew rapidly forced his way into every area of life of the German people. After Bismarck’s fall in 1890, the misfortune could no longer be halted.
Influence of Jewry in the economy. The House of Rothschild is a classic example. The Jew Meyer Amschel Rothschild was the founder of this “ruling house.” He began as a small merchant, them moved to money trading, and finally became court advisor to the Elector of Hesse. During the French Revolution, he earned millions by supplying the army. His five sons settled in Frankfurt, London, Paris, Vienna, and Naples, becoming Europe’s most powerful bankers.
Even kings and emperors fall victim to the Jew’s weapon of money. At the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, the capitalist Jew stood higher than the political statesman, and soon the Jew Walter Rathenau could substitute the slogan "The economy is fate" for the holy concept of “blood and soil.” Jewry gained absolute control of Germany’s economy and commerce after the November Revolution of 1918. As Germany’s poverty grew, thousands of Jews immigrated from Galicia and Poland to our land in order to exploit the German people’s misery. In 1925, there were 76,000 Jewish immigrants. Filthy and poor, carrying all their possessions in a sack, they moved to Breslau, Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg, etc. The plague also broke out in Baden, along the border. Within a few years, the Jews had gathered wealth and possessions. The following statistics show the economic power Jewry had in Germany.
In 1930, 57% of the 603 German metalworking firms were Jewish, 41% of the 514 dealers in scrap metal, 39% of the 12,858 textile firms, and 61% of the 133 wholesalers of women’s clothing. Of the 147 members of the Berlin stock exchange, 116 were Jewish! Four of the six members of the board of directors of the Reich Bank were Jews!
The Jews Katz, Kutisker, Barmat, Sklarek, and Rotter cheated the German people of many, many millions in economic life. Despite their guilt, they managed to avoid long prison sentences.
Influence of the Jews in German professional life. In Prussia in 1925, Jews were:
- 59% of commerce and transportation (17% of the general population works in this area);
- 26% of industry and crafts;
- 2% of agriculture (30% of the general population works in this area);
- 6% of civil servants and the professions (5% of the general population works in these areas);
- 4% of the health care system (2% of the general population works in this area).
In Berlin in 1933, Jews were:
- 42% of all doctors,
- 52% of all insurance doctors,
- 45% of all hospital directors,
- 35% of all dentists,
- 28% of all pharmacists,
- 48% of all attorneys!
- 56% of all notaries!
- 80% of all theatre directors!
Jews take over German culture. To break the German powers of resistance, the Jews worked to poison our cultural life. Their filthy theatrical productions and dirty movies corrupted many Germans, particularly the young. Lovely old German fables were replaced by dirty books, Jewish jazz music drove out German folk songs. The German soul was increasingly poisoned, and the German people made ready for conquest.
Jews and politics. Politics was decisive; therefore, the Jew put particular energy into increasing his influence in politics. The Jew played a particularly destructive role in the November Revolution. One, a Polish Jew, made himself President of Bavaria. He declared that Germany bore the guilt for the World War. Levien, also a Jew, was a leader of the Munich Soviet Republic. He participated in the slaughter of hostages. Krautsky, a Czech Jew, succeeded in becoming a Reich undersecretary of state. He wrote a book that made Germany particularly guilty for the war, ignoring or twisting important documents. Lies by Eisner and Krautsky did great damage to our fatherland.
The Jews assumed important state positions, until our Führer took over the leadership of the state. Hilferding, a Jew from Austria, was Reich Minister of Finance for a long time. The Police President of berlin, Isidor Weiß, was a Jew. Even the Foreign Ministry was lead by a Jew for a long time. The Jews had leading roles in the Marxist parties. The Jews Marx, Lasalle, Rosa Luxemburg, Liebknecht, Hilferding, Hugo Haase, and others were leading Marxists. In 1924, 22% of SPD representatives were Jewish, 15% of the USPD. These people misled German workers for decades. Our Führer tells us in his book Mein Kampf how the Jews thought up Marxism. When Adolf Hitler was working in construction in Vienna, fighting for his future, misled workers tried to convince him of the Jewish doctrines of Marxism. They said more or less the following: "Look, we are workers, without rights and oppressed. We are a class, a working class, and have but one enemy, the bourgeoisie, the rich. That is whom we fight against. Workers all over the world are fighting him." Adolf Hitler saw the falseness of this doctrine, but also saw that it had been thought up by Jews. He also knew that it would be impossible to wipe out this doctrine, which had split the German people into enemy camps, without taking power away from the Jew. Therefore, Adolf Hitler set himself the task of taking his great influence away from the Jew, and never losing sight of that goal. Thus, immediately after the German revolution, the Jew was removed from all influential positions through the Aryan Paragraph of the Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service of 7 April 1933. The Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honor (Reich Party Rally at Nuremberg, 1935) prohibited marriage between Germans and Jews. Racial defilement is severely punished. The Jews are excluded from Reich citizenship. After 100 years, this law once again makes clear the line between Germans and Jews, to the blessing of our people.
