By Dr. Friederich Karl Wiehe. Translated by Eckhart Verlag. Annotated by Francis Dupont. First published by the Institute for the Study of the Jewish Question in Berlin in 1938, this book became the standard work which set out to explain the policies of National Socialist Germany to the outside world.
Starting with the time of the first anti-Jewish riots in Alexandria to the Age of Enlightenment, this work shows how host nations have attempted to welcome and assimilate Jewish immigrants—but that these attempts have always ended in anti-Semitism caused by Jewish behavior.
It then moves on to a discussion of Jewish influence in Germany, starting with a detailed breakdown of Jewish numbers and areas of concentration with the 1871–1919 borders of Germany. In seven sections it explains how Jews:
– Dominated the German economy,
– Were the most financially corrupt element in pre-1933 Germany,
– Dominated the far left, socialist and revolutionary parties, ran the militant movements and were behind the numerous armed attempts to create a Soviet Germany,
– Controlled the mainstream political parties during the interwar years,
– Controlled the press in Germany,
– Dominated German culture—including the literary, film and stage worlds,
– Dominated the underworld of sexual and immoral degeneracy which characterized the “Weimar” years, and
– Made up the lion’s share of organized criminality in Weimar Germany.
