A Stuermer Article from 1943

Today I'm adding a July 1943 article from Julius Streicher's Der Stürmer titled "Our Faith," claiming that the Jews were responsible for the war, and that it had predicted back in 1938 that such a war would end with the destruction of the Jews.  It's one of numerous similar articles from the period.  This was published after the bulk of the killing had already occurred.

For those interested, my book on Julius Streicher goes into considerable detail on his work.

I'm living in Freising now, which is aparently where Streicher was taken after captured and, he claimed, tortured by American GIs.
I'm trying to get my students to do some research into the four Jewish families who had lived in the town at the time of the NS. I'm quite excited to have a Dachau survivor come to talk to my students next month.
