Instructions for a 1943 Nazi Anti-Semitic Campaign

Even though much of the killing of the Holocaust was finished by May 1943, the Nazis still promoted anti-Semitism. They feared that Germans might decide that anti-Semitism was no longer  relevant. In May 1943, as part of a broader anti-Semitic campaign, the Deutscher Wochendienst, a confidential newsletter for magazine editors, provided a catalog of anti-Semitic argument that editors were to use in their publications.

I am adding a full translation of that issue. And although I rarely include the German original of material on the site, I am including a pdf of the original, since it is such a rare and illuminating document.
