Hitler’s Army In America
By MILTON BROWN
EDITOR’S NOTE: The Hun
garian anti-Nazi newspaper
Az Ember, published in New
York, recently printed a se
ries of articles containing
sensational allegations with
regard to development of a
fifth column in the United
States. The following arti
cle presents a summary of
the Az Ember series.
A vast Nazi fifth column,
grouping hundreds of thousands
of men trained in all phases of
modem military attack, has been
organized in the United States
and is geared for immediate ac
tion if and when enemy forces
strike at this country from with
out. This is the assertion of an
anti - Nazi Hungarian newspaper,
Az Ember, in a series of articles
entitled “Hitler’s Ready - Made
Army in America.”
The newspaper, published in
New York, claims that “units” of
this force, whose intensive mili
tary preparations are screened by
seemingly peaceful pursuits, will
smash at vital points behind the
lines as soon as the attack order
is issued under a Grand Nazi
Strategy plan for America. This
plan allegedly provides that the
Nazi “fifth column” cooperate

with enemy forces driving against
the United States from, the South.
The “infantry” of this army is
composed of innumerable sharp
shooters drilled in German rifle
societies, many of which are lo
cated in New York and New Jer
sey, according to the newspaper.
The biggest and probably the most
militant of all Nazi rifle clubs is
said to be the New York Central
Schuetzen Corps, commanded by
Hauptmann (Captain) John N.
Gennerich at 1253 Lexington Ave
nue, New York City. The second
in importance is assertedly the
Brooklyn Schuetzen Corps with
headquarters at the Schwaben
Halle under Captain Otto F. Pe
tersen.
The numerous German automo
bile associations and bicycle clubs
and scores of “marine” associa
tions form respectively the nu
clei of Nazi “motorized divisions”
and “naval units” in the United
States, it is alleged.
German-American pilots, pos
sessing private planes and gliders,
wdl form the Nazi fifth column
“air force.” Wireless operators
with powerful short-wave sta
tions, now disguised as radio ama
teurs, will be called upon to act
as communication and signal
corps. German technicians, organ
ized in apparently harmless Teeh
niker-Verbende, will report for
duty as engineers. These will be
seconded by mapmakers, supply
units, and a smooth-functioning
intelligence service which has
been organized for years in this
country, the newspaper states.
According to a report sent to
the Berlin Government by Nazi
agents here, Chancellor Hitler
may count on the “unrestricted”
cooperation of 2,188,000 German
born American' citizens in this
country, it is said. The names and
addresses of these supposedly
' loyal Germans” were collected
by the Nazis in advance over a
period of six years.
The newspaper says that Fritz
Kuhn’s German-American Bund is
only a “decoy” held in disdain
Berlin but used to camouflage the
real masterminds in this country.
These key men work behind the
scenes, observing absolute secre
cy, it is said. Their activities, cov
ering practically every sphere of
public life, are coordinated by the
German Embassy at Washington
and the German Consulate at San
Francisco under Captain Fritz
Weidemann, the Az Ember arti
cles assert.
In an effort to dispel the belief
that the Nazi threat to this coun
try is an illusory one, the newspa-

Posted in the Synagogues throughout the Uni
ted States, in connection with the observance of
Tisha B’Av on August 13th, is a call of the Jew
ish National Fund urging further popular support
for the wartime program of the Jewish people’s
fund for the acquisition qf new land in the Jewish
National Home in Palestine. It enacts the historic
scene which took place in the “King’s Court of the
Guard,” Jerusalem, during the siege and shortly
before the fall of Judaea’s capital.
per cites an ominous passage in
the book “Unser Amerika” (Our
America) written by Colin Ross,
German propagandist who has
been active in the United States,
and published in Berlin by a firm
partly owned by Hitler.
“There will be one to rise and
gather them, a German Thomas
Paine,” the author is quoted as
saying. “And they will respond as
soon as they become conscious of
the fact that they are not ‘Ameri
cans’ but ‘Amerikaner,’ men of
German blood living on American
soil. . . They we will be able to
call to the New World across the
Atlantic rightly and so that no
body can find fault with it: Un
ser America, Our America.”
The newspaper points out that
the Nazi writer blandly overlooks
the fact that Thomas Paine stood
for democracy and against any
form of tyranny.
According to the newspaper, the
Nazis at the outbreak of war sig
nificantly directed their nationals
abroad to stick to their posts even
at the price of changing their
names and residences. In addition
those Germans who were lured
back to the Reich previous to the
war were rounded up and now are
streaming back to the United
States ready to obey the “Fath
erland’s” behests wherever possi
ble, it is asserted. These persons,
who pose as refugees, arrive here
with adequate funds even though
German currency regulations per
mit the exportation of only 10
marks per capita, Az Ember
claims.
