to be published for the first time in English is an article published in the German
newspaper Voelkischer Beobachter, No. 88, March 29, 1933 in which he is
quoted after giving a speech in response to the article below.
Hitler had only been Chancellor for 2 months.

first, the London Daily Express article, then, Chancellor Hitler's response:

Daily Express. London, March 24, 1933, pp. 1-2.


[A composite photo with Hitler before a presumably Jewish court]




"Daily Express" Special Political Correspondent.

A strange and unforeseen sequel has emerged from the stories of
German Jew-baiting.

The whole of Israel throughout the world is uniting to declare
an economic and financial war on Germany.

Hitherto the cry has gone up: "Germany is persecuting the Jews."
If the present plans are carried out, the Hitlerite cry will be:
"The Jews are persecuting Germany."

All Israel is rising in wrath against the Nazi onslaught on
the Jews. Adolf Hitler, swept into power by an appeal of
elemental patriotism, is making history of a kind he least
expected. Thinking to unite only the German nation to race
consciousness, he has roused the whole Jewish people to
national renascence.

The appearance of the Swastika symbol of a new Germany has
called forth the Lion of Judah, the old battle symbol of
Jewish defiance.

Fourteen million Jews, dispersed throughout the world, have
banded together as one man to declare war on the German
persecutors of their co-religionists. Sectional differences
and antagonisms

[strip-shaped drawing with alternating swastikas and lions]

have been submerged in one common aim - to stand by the
600,000 Jews of Germany who are terrorised by Hitlerite
anti-Semitism and to compel Fascist Germany to end its
campaign of violence and suppression directed against its
Jewish minority.

P l a n s F o r A c t i o n M a t u r i n g

I n E u r o p e A n d A m e r i c a

World Jewry has made up its mind not to rest quiescent in
face of this revival of medieval Jew-baiting.

Germany may be called on to pay a heavy price for Hitler's
antagonism to the Jews. She is faced with an international
boycott in commerce, finance, and industry.

The Jewish merchant prince is leaving his counting-house,
the banker his board-room, the shopkeeper his store, and
the pedlar his humble barrow, to join together in what has
become a holy war to combat the Hitlerite enemies of the Jew.

Plans for concerted Jewish action are being matured in Europe
and America to strike back in reprisal at Hitlerite Germany.

In London, New York, Paris, and Warsaw Jewish merchants are
waiting for a commercial crusade.

Resolutions are being taken throughout the Jewish business




world to sever trade relations with Germany.

Large numbers of merchants in London have resolved to stop
buying German goods, even at the cost of suffering heavy loss.

A meeting of the Jewish textile trade in London has been called
for Monday to consider the situation and to determine what steps
should be taken.

Germany is a heavy borrower in foreign money markets, where
Jewish influence is considerable. Continued anti-Semitism in
Germany is likely to react seriously against her. A move is on
foot on the part of Jewish financiers to exert pressure to force
anti-Jewish action to stop.

The Organisation of Jewish Youth in Britain are organizing
demonstrations in London and the provinces during the weekend.

The Board of Deputies of British Jews, representing the entire
Jewish community of Great Britain, are meeting in special
session on Sunday to discuss the German situation, and to decide
on what action should be taken to counteract the attacks on
their German fellow-Jews.

World-wide preparations are being made to organise demonstrations
of protest.


A concerted boycott by Jewish buyers is likely to involve grave
damage to the German export trade. Jewish merchants all over the
world are large buyers of German manufactured goods, chiefly
cotton goods, silks, toys, electrical fittings, and furniture.

In Poland, the trade embargo on Germany is already in operation.
In France, a proposed ban on German imports is being widely
canvassed in Jewish circles.

German Transatlantic shipping traffic is likewise threatened.
The Bremen and the Europa, the German crack liners, may suffer
heavily from a Jewish anti-German boycott. Jewish trans-ocean
travellers form an important part of the patrons of these liners
because of their extensive part in international trade. The loss
of their patronage would be a heavy blow to Germany's Atlantic

In New York yesterday 10,000 Jewish ex-soldiers marched to the
City Hall to hold a protest demonstration.

Large crowds watched the men, some of whom wore old British
uniforms, petition the mayor to support them in a boycott of
German goods.

Another petition was handed in at the British Consulate-General
requesting that Palestine should receive refugees from Germany
without restriction.

Members of the American House of Representatives are introducing
resolutions protesting against the anti-Jewish excesses in
Germany. The American trade unions, representing 3,000,000
workers, have also decided to join in the protest.

A rabbinical decree in New York has made the next Monday a day
of fasting and prayer over the Hitler campaign.

Fasting will begin on Sunday at sunset and finish at sunset on

All Jewish shops in New York will be closed on Monday during a

Apart from a monster meeting in Madison-square Garden, meetings
are to be held in 300 American cities.

Madison-square Garden will see the remarkable sight of Bishop
Manning speaking from a Jewish platform appealing for an end of
the Hitler "terror."


It had been arranged to charge a shilling admission and 5 s.
for box seats, but a public-spirited Jew, Frank Cohen, an

Every rabbi in the city of New York has been placed under a
sacred obligation by rabbinical decree to devote Saturday's

it to call a halt in the oppression of the German Jews.

Adolf Hitler’s Swift Response to ‘Judea’s’ Declaration of War

ADOLF HITLER WAS ELECTED JAN. 30, 1933, defeating among other parties, the competing Jewish-led Communist Party with its millions of members. Hitler’s election signaled unfavorable political changes for those Jews who seized power in Germany after World War I. The Jews had the highest employment rate in leading positions, often as high as 60% of the jobs, while they represented only about 1% of the population. The Jews lived well in Germany. In contrast, tens of millions of Germans were unemployed. More than a million starved to death after World War I. Jewry used Hitler’s election as an occasion to plant pub- licly the seed for war against Germany. On March 24, 1933, the headlines of The Daily Express in London read: “Judea Declares War on Germany—Jews of All the World Unite—Boycott German Goods.” In response, Hitler took action four days later.

The following message was delivered by Adolf Hitler to the National Socialist Party on March 28, 1933. The Fuehrer’s order has been translated from the Voelkischer Beobachter, No. 88, March 29, 1933.

After 14 years of inner conflicts, the German Volk has overcome its ranks, classes, professions and religious divisions politically and carried out an uprising that put a lightning-quick end to the Marxist-Jewish racket. In the weeks after Jan. 30, a unique national revolution took place in Germany. Despite long, severest oppressions and persecutions, the masses of millions who stand behind the leadership of the national revolution, granted in perfect repose and discipline the legal endorsement to the new leadership of the Reich, to implement the reform of the German nation’s government in its leadership and constituents.

On March 5, by far the majority of eligible German voters voiced their confidence in the new brigade. The perfection of the national revolution has, therefore, become the demand of the nation. The Jewish-Marxist big wheels vacated their power positions in pitiful cowardice. Despite all their clamor, not a single one of them dared to render serious resistance. For the most part, they abandoned the masses they had lead astray and fled to foreign countries with their stuffed depositories.

In this conquest, the authors and beneficiaries of our misfortune can attribute getting away unharmed, almost without exception, to the unprecedented discipline and calmness in how this uprising proceeded. Hardly a hair on their heads was harmed. When comparing this achievement in self discipline by those participating in the national uprising in Germany with, for example, the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia-resulting in more than three million deaths-one can appreciate how greatly indebted those criminals responsible for the German decline are to the power of the national revolt. Contrasting further the terrible battles and destruction during the revolution by these November men themselves-the shooting of their hostages in the years 1918 and 1919, and their butchering of helpless rivals-one will see again an enormous difference between them and the national revolution.

The leaders have solemnly announced that they want to live in peace with the world! The German Volk staunchly follows in allegiance!

Germany does not want world turmoil or international embroilment. But the national revolutionary Germany has firmly decided to put an end to its domestic mismanagement! Now that the inner enemies of the nation have been rendered harmless by the people themselves, what was long expected has arrived:

The Communist and Marxist criminals and their Jewish intellectual ringleaders, who headed to foreign countries with their monies in time, now unfurl from there an unscrupulous, treasonous hate campaign against all the German people. Since lying has become impossible for them in Germany, they launch it from the capitals of the former Entente, pouring out the same malicious agitations against the young national revolt as they did against Germany at the beginning of WWI.

Lies and slander, steeped in hair-raising perversions, are unleashed against Germany. Gruesome fables of hacked up Jewish corpses, eyes cut out and hacked off hands are distributed with the intention to defame the German people in the world for a second time and in the same way they have accomplished this in 1914. Millions of innocent people, nations with whom the German people only want to live in peace, are agitated against us by these devious criminals.

They want that German goods and German labor fall victim to an international boycott. For them, the poverty in Germany is not severe enough; they want it to be worse!

They lie and tell of Jewish women being killed, Jewish girls being raped before their parents’ eyes, and cemeteries being devastated. All of it is just one big lie, invented with the objective to spawn a new world war hate propaganda! If one were to continue to stand by this maddening crime and do nothing, one would be guilty of accessory!

Therefore, the National Socialist party will now start a defensive campaign against this serious crime with suitable methods to target those responsible. The guilty ones are right here with us. They live among us and abuse day in and day out the hospitality granted to them by the German people.

At a time when millions of us have nothing to live on and nothing to eat, when hundreds of thousands of academics go to waste on the streets, these Jewish scholars are sitting contented among us and claim their guest entitlements. What would the United States do if the German Americans would sin in the same nefarious ways against Americans as these Jews do against Germany? And yet, the National Socialist revolution has scarcely harmed a hair on their head!

They were able to attend to their businesses as before; however, corruption will be eradicated, regardless of who commits it! Belonging to the Jewish race or to the Mosaic religion is as little license for criminal activity as belonging to our race or the Christian faith.

For decades, Germany let foreigners come here, indiscriminately. One hundred thirty-five people live here on one square kilometer; compare this to the U.S. with not even 15 people. And yet, the U.S. uses, extensively, a restrictive immigration system and certain nationals are excluded altogether. Germany, disregarding its own hardship, did not take such measures for decades. In gratitude for that-while millions of our own people are without work and go to pieces-a clan of Jewish intellectuals, professors and businessmen agitate hate against us in the world.

This has now come to an end! The Germany of the national revolution is not the Germany of cowardly citizens. We see the need and impoverishment of our own people and have the duty not to neglect doing what prevents further damage to our Volk. The Jews among us are responsible for the lies and defamation. From them originates the lie and hate campaign against Germany! It would be in their power to censure the liars in the rest of the world. Since they do not want to do this, we will make certain that this lie and hate maneuver against Germany will not target our innocent German Volk at home but instead will strike the responsible agitators themselves. The boycott instigation and atrocity propaganda must not, and will not, affect the German people at home but will touch the Jews themselves in a thousand-fold severity.

Therefore, the following order goes forth to all party service posts and party organizations:

Item 1: Action Committees to Boycott the Jews

In every regional group and organization structure of the NSDAP (‘National Sozialistische Deutsche Arbeiter Partei), action committees are to be formed immediately for a practical and methodical execution of boycotting Jewish stores, Jewish products, Jewish doctors and Jewish attorneys. The action committees are responsible for making sure that this boycott does not affect any innocent people but strikes the guilty that much harder.

Item 2: Highest Protection for all Foreigners

The action committees are responsible for the utmost protection of all foreigners, regardless of their faith, origin, or race. The boycott is merely a defensive measure exclusively directed toward Jewry in Germany.

Item 3: Boycott Promotion

The action committees are to immediately promote the boycott by advertising and education. Tenet: ‘No good German still buys from a Jew or accepts goods from a Jew and those who endorse him.’ The boycott must be universal. It will be undertaken by all of our Volk and must strike Jewry in its most vulnerable place.

Item 4: The Central Leadership: Pg. Streicher

In doubtful cases, boycotting such businesses shall be avoided until other instructions are forthcoming from the Central Committee in Munich. The chairman for the Central Committee is Pg. Streicher.

Item 5: Newspaper Monitoring

The action committees will monitor newspapers most rigorously to determine how extensively they are involved in the education campaign of the German people against the Jewish atrocity propaganda in foreign countries. If newspapers do not participate, or only in limited ways, it is to be assured that they will be removed immediately from every German home. No German man and no German business shall put ads into those papers! These newspapers must be met with public disdain, as they are written for Jewish racial comrades and not for the German people.

Item 6: Boycott as a Measure to Protect German Labor

The action committees, in correlation with the administrative organization branches of the party, must carry the education campaign into businesses, and especially to the German workers. The worker must be informed about the consequences generated by this Jewish atrocity propaganda for him and his job. It must be explained to him why the national boycott is necessary as a defense measure to protect German jobs.

Item 7: Action Committees to Reach all the Way to the Most Remote Villages

The action committees must be propelled into the smallest farming villages to affect especially the Jewish merchant in the planes. Fundamentally, it always must be emphasized that this is a defensive action forced upon us.

Item 8: The Boycott Starts April 1

The boycott does not start in a scattered way but strikes promptly. For this reason, all preparations are to be made immediately. Ordinances are going forth to the SA and SS that from the moment the boycott begins, the population is to be warned by guards against entering Jewish stores. The start of the boycott is to be announced at billboards, by the press, and with leaflets, etc. The boycott starts exactly at 10 o’clock in the morning on Saturday, April 1. It will continue as long as no announcement from the party leadership commands it to be revoked.

Item 9: Mass Demand for Numerus Clausus

The action committees must organize immediately in tens of thousands of mass meetings, reaching all the way into the smallest villages, the demand for launching a ‘relative number’ employment principle for Jews in all occupations in accord with their relative number in our population. To heighten the impact, this requirement is at first limited to three spheres:

1) German middle schools and high schools

2) Physicians

3) Lawyers

Item 10: Educating Abroad

The action committees further have the responsiblity to make sure that every German with a connection to a foreign country utilizes this relationship to broadcast in letters, telegrams, and telephone calls the truth, making it clear that there is peace and order in Germany, that the German people desire nothing more ardently than to live in harmony, attend to their work and to be in peace with the rest of the world. It must be made clear that the battle against the atrocious Jewish hate propaganda is purely self-defensive.

Item 11: Composure, Discipline and No Violence

The action committees are responsible that this whole effort proceeds in the most peaceful way and with greatest discipline. Don’t even hurt as much as a hair on a Jew’s head! We will defeat their provocations simply with the far-reaching impact of these given measures! More than ever before, it is important that the whole party stands in blind obedience, like one man, behind their leadership. National Socialists, you have achieved the miracle of bringing down the ‘November State’ with just one strike, surely you will accomplish this second assignment just the same!

This, the international Jewry shall know: The government of the national revolution is not operating in a vacuum. It is the representative of the workings of the German people. Whoever attacks the government, attacks Germany! Whoever defames it, defames the nation! Whoever fights against it, has declared war on 65 million! We have dealt with the Marxist instigators in Germany; they will not bring us to our knees, even as they now continue their treason from foreign countries.

National Socialists! Saturday, exactly at 10 in the morning, Jewry shall know to whom they have declared war!

National Socialists, German Workers Party Leadership!

Is this what Stormfront spam emails look like?

This is hardly the first time this speech has been translated into English and published. There are multiple books that contain this speech. Oh, also, per the TOS, you can't just copy and paste like that. You can provide the link, a small quoted section and then your own commentary on what we are supposed to be discussing. I'm sure you have some depraved, disgusting, Nazi-apolgoist, anti-Semite slant to posting this, so why don't you just come out and say it?

The Jewish boycott was a direct response from the international Jewish community to the elevation of the Nazi party and Hitler to power in Germany on what was an incredibly open platform of Jewish persecution and the granting of "emergency powers" to Hitler following the Reichstag fire. Hitler responded with a counter boycott against Jewish businesses in Germany. None of this is hidden or secret or unknown.

You are of course presenting it all in a carefully selected way. The Daily Express is nothing more than a tabloid. They were the only paper to run the sensational headline of "Judea Declares War on Germany". If you ever read a Holocaust denial website (not you know Snowball, I know you love them, just the general 'you' of other readers) you will frequently find this headline and article cited as evidence of a conspiracy against the Nazi government by "World Jewry" which of course would then justify the later actions of Nazi Germany.

The site this is pulled from "germanvictims.com" is a known neo-Nazi, fascist website and the content of it is frequently quoted on multiple websites. It also heavily features articles from IHR (Institute for Historical Research) which is a fake academic cover for Stormfront which itself is the internets largest repository of white supremacists, neo-Nazis, Holocaust deniers and anti-Semites. You can instantly find the "spin" as the intro to Hitlers speech in between the two articles is not actually part of the speech and is the typical and completely false rant about Jews controlling Germany.

One is the Stormfront run pseudo-academic facade IHR.org. Metapedia has it. City Data now has it. However, it was published in several books that I am aware of including in this one from 2004 which is a chronicle of all of Hitlers speeches and decrees:

Hitler: Speeches and Proclamations, 1932-1945--The Chronicle of a Dictatorship (4 Volume Set): Max Domarus: 9780865162280: Amazon.com: Books

The speech was also in a text I had in college that was published in 1972.

Additionally, it is beyond silly to assume that this is some kind of "new" piece of information just being translated into English (which was your claim in the OP). This was a major decree and speech from Hitler and was widely known at the time. It is certainly rare to see it in its entirety online or even in a book, but it is nothing new to an English speaking audience as you pretended it to be.

nothing else you said changes any of the facts,
The facts are the same, I was merely placing them into correct context and pointing out the source of your information which has a vested interest in applying spin to the facts.

and your assumptions concerning my personal beliefs are getting annoying.
I have asked you several times to just clear the air and say exactly what it is you believe in. You refuse to do so and that refusal keeps me calling out the BS whenever you post it. As for my assumptions, you post more then enough for me to have a pretty good idea of what your beliefs are; though I'm not sure how they all mesh together. You are so obvious with some of it that it's like assuming that the guy in purple spandex carrying a rainbow flag at the gay pride parade is himself gay...not much of a stretch.
