Excerpts from Julius Streicher's speeches
fellow Germans! Evenings I walk through the streets of our bustling city and
observe: I see thousands of workers pass by in poor clothing, after strenuous
hours of daily work, with their lunch boxes in their hands. Often I catch
snatches of conversation. They speak of their sorrowful lives and their unending
misery. However, there are also people who pass by me who do not work, wearing
costly fur coats, with thick necks and fat bellies. They are the Jews, who are
taking their evening stroll.
speak of profits and business. What a contrast between the German workers and
these Jews! I always ask myself: Why is the Jew never a worker? Why doesn't he
ever engage in the business of honourable creativity? Why does he become rich
and make profits without any effort? The Jew is born to haggle and bargain in
wares and riches. My Folk! A Folk born to haggling have no right to live
alongside a Folk who have, for millennia, readily nourished themselves through
people work -- the Jew lives at the expense of the German!
Jew has never taken an interest in the history of our Folk. During the Great War
the percentage of Jews in battle was about to have been made public. When the
Jews heard of this intention, they turned to the Kaiser and threatened to cease
all war loans if this was carried out. Actually, the availability of the portion
of Jews in the German fight was already known. Today it is possible for me to
present you with such figures: of 100 German soldiers, 3 fell in battle; while
of 100 Jewish soldiers, 1 fell. And we don't wonder over it! Just as the German
would have no interest in the affairs of China were the Chinese Folk fighting
another country, so the Jew had no occasion to show interest in Germany during
the Great War.
The Jew is a
foreigner, therefore he naturally must behave like a foreigner!
But the Jew did not emerge comfortably in Germany alone, but in other lands as
well. It is therefore wrong to say that France, England, and the other Allies
won the War.
International Jew was the one and only victor! This is the same overall goal
wherever he lives: whether Germany, England, France, or other countries, JEWS
know that Germany will only be free when the Jew is shut out of the life of the
German Folk. We are of the belief that the reconciliation of a Folk can finally
come only when that Folk is freed from the mastery of the Jew. You Communists
who believe in the Jewish Internationale will finally come to realise that this
will not bring you fortune. Stay German! Think nationalistically! When all Folks
have shaken off the Jewish yoke, then the way will be free for a new
Internationale, to a real Folks' community!
though, do we proceed against the Jewish exploiters? The Enemy has spread the
rumour that we are preparing an attempted uprising. The organised Jewish press
drips with such
news. My Comrades! We know an attempted uprising is not feasible. We will,
however, enlighten the German Folk until the Jewish threat is fully realised.
When our Folk are again German, think German, and act German, then we will have
reached our goal. That is the time when many rulers of Civil Government and
Parliament will pack their bags and disappear. This moment will never lead to
power, but, on the contrary, will be born from power itself.
times one hears that our goal should be monarchy. Yes, some even believe that we
will restore the Kaiser to his throne! What a laughable rumour! We would never
think of it! We have never had a German Kaiser. Wilhelm II was surrounded by the
Jews Ballin and Rathenau. They exercised a great influence over the Kaiser and
tried to alienate him from his Folk. We strive for neither Monarchy nor
Our goal is a

in the past many Germans lived ignorantly of it, the Jew perceived the
significance of the present historical moment. With the basest means he fought
the National Socialist Movement. Through personal smears against The Leader, the
Jew tried to inflict shame on our Movement. In those days one had apparently
spread the report that I was previously convicted of a sexual crime. I ask you
to name this slanderer so I can turn him over to the authorities. When I was, a
short time ago, sentenced to 14 days in prison for
against the Jewish religion,
the Jewish led press could not wait to publish the fact. However, if an Appeals
Court had reduced the sentencing to a mere fine, it would be a long time until
this press published such a fact! How my enemies would look forward to my being
locked up and pushed out of my job! The
has already demanded that I be relieved of my job and be placed in a lunatic
asylum! Publicly one has spread the smear that I receive a fee for my political
efforts. I declare here, that it is indeed unfortunate that no Germans could be
found who care for the revival of Germany. The Jews are not so petty when their
goals are concerned. I receive not a Pfennig for my work. I believe I have the
right to say that I have made enough personal sacrifice. Let someone attack and
kick me -- I'll fight until victory! And this we will obtain, even if others now
have power! My belief is, that the German Folk, after witnessing so much misery,
will one day rise again!

never leave this mountain without reminding you of the devil that goes about
waiting to swallow us up. As a youth, I felt that there were some dark forces
coming from the Devil. Today I have become enlightened, and I repeat over and
over again that the racial question is the key to world history. The Jew has
brought misfortune into the world. Christ said of the Jews:
You are the
children of the Devil, you have been criminals from the very beginning.
Today a representative of the foreign press asked me whether I believed that
wherever there were Jews there would be antisemitism. I answered:
are germs of disease, there will be disease. The Jew has spread like a
pestilence. Wherever a single Jew is to be found within a Nation, the Devil has
found his way in, and for this reason wherever the Jew comes there will be

thing cannot be doubted. Whoever has Jewish blood, no matter how little, is lost
to the Folk Community. Jew blood creates Judases. With everyone that has Jewish
blood, there is a danger that he may be a traitor. We must never soften towards
the Jew. He speculates on the decency of the Germans. It is no mere chance that
for centuries the Jew was not allowed to take an oath. The Jew lives only to
cheat, you can find that in the

the Jew is the Devil. He took everything from us after the war. Distress became
worse and worse, and people had to starve. Some people prayed even then, but God
could not help because men had become so bad. They had done everything that the

beg you, and particularly those of you who carry the cross throughout the land,
to become somewhat more serious when I speak of the enemy of the German Folk,
namely, the Jew. Not out of irresponsibility or for fun do I fight against the
Jewish enemy, but because I bear within me the knowledge that the whole
misfortune was brought to Germany by the Jews alone. I ask you once more, what
is at stake today? The Jew seeks domination not only among the German Folk, but
among all Folks. The communists pave the way for him. Do you not know that the
God of the
orders the Jews to consume and enslave the Folks of the Earth? The Government
allows the Jew to do as he pleases. The Folk expect action to be taken. You may
think about Adolf Hitler as you please, but one thing you must admit. He
possessed the courage to attempt to free the German Folk from the Jew by a
national revolution. That was action indeed!
must realise that the Jew wants our Folk to perish. That is why you must join us
and leave those who have brought you nothing but war, inflation, and discord.
For thousands of years the Jew has been destroying the Nations. Let us make a
new beginning today so that we can annihilate the Jews.
13 years I have fought against Jewry. We know that the Jew, whether he is
baptised as a Protestant or as a Catholic, remains a Jew. Why cannot you
realise, you Protestant clergymen, you Catholic priests, you who have scales
before your eyes and serve the God of the Jews, who is not the God of Love but
the God of Hate? Why do you not listen to Christ, who said to the Jews:
children of the Devil.

man who murdered Wilhelm Gustloff had to come from the Jewish Folk, because the
Jewish textbooks teach that every Jew has the right to kill a non Jew, and,
indeed, that it is pleasing to the Jewish God to kill as many non Jews as
possible. Look at the way the Jewish Folk have been following this law for
thousands of years past; everywhere murder, everywhere mass murder. Neither must
we forget that behind presentday wars there stands the Jewish financier who
pursues his aims and interests. The Jew always lives on the blood of other
Nations; he needs such murder and such victims. For us who know, the murder of
Wilhelm Gustloff is the same as Ritual Murder. It is our duty to tell the
children at school and the bigger ones what this memorial means. The Jew no
longer shows himself among us openly as he used to. But it would be wrong to say
that victory is ours. Full and final victory will have been achieved only when
the whole world has been rid of Jews.

No, he is told:
With the non
Jew you can do whatever you like.
He is even taught that the slaughtering of a non Jew is an act pleasing to God.
For 20 years we have been writing about this in
for 20 years we have been preaching it throughout the world, and we have made
millions recognise the truth. The Jew slaughtered in one night 75,000 people;
when he emigrated to Egypt he killed all the firstborn, that is, a whole future
generation of Egyptians. What would have happened if the Jew had succeeded in
driving the Nations into war against us, and if we had lost the war? The Jew,
protected by foreign bayonets, would have fallen on us and would have
slaughtered and murdered us. Never forget what history has taught us.
repeat, we demand the transformation of the school into a national German
institution of education. If we let German children be taught by German
teachers, then we shall have laid the foundations for the national German
school. This national German school must teach racial doctrine. We demand,
therefore, the introduction of racial doctrine into the school.

and girls, look back to a little more than 10 years ago. A great war -- the
World War -- had whirled over the Folks of the Earth and had left in the end a
heap of ruins. Only one Folk remained victorious in this dreadful war, a people
of whom Christ said its father is the Devil. That Folk had ruined the German
Nation in body and soul. Then Adolf Hitler, unknown to anybody, arose from among
the Folk and became the voice which called all to a holy war and battle. He
cried to the Folk for everybody to take courage again and to rise and get a
helping hand to take the Devil from the German Folk, so that the human race
might be free again from these people that have wandered about the world for
centuries and millennia, marked with the sign of Cain. Boys and girls, even if
they say that the Jews were once the chosen Folk, do not believe it, but believe
us when we say that the Jews are not a chosen Folk. Because it cannot be that a
chosen Folk should act among the Folks as the Jews do today.
