Nazis Print
Pamphlets
Attacking Pope
Geneva (JPS) Launch
ing what .is probably the
biggest campaign in its ca
reer, the Nazi propaganda
department has printed 10,-
000,000 pamphlets in six
languages to be distributed
free in all European coun
tries, attacking Pope Pius
XII because of his recent
intervention with the Vichy
Government in behalf of the
Jews.
The pamphlet states that
throughout the centuries the
Popes favored an anti-Jew
ish policy similar to that
practiced by the Nazis. It
enumerates eighteen Popes
who were anti-Semitic, de
claring that none but the
present Pope is a friend of
the Jews and that he there
by discredits the Catholic
world. It follows, therefore,
that the Pope must vacate
his office, the Nazis assert.

statement issued here by J. A. Goris, Commissioner of In

earth taken from every one of the
Jewish villages of Palestine, a
simple tombstone of white marble,
quarried in Jerusalem, was un

Scopus on the first anniversary of
the death of Menahem Ussishkin,
“Iron Man” of Zionism and presi- j

In accordance with local cus

handfuls of earth brought during
the past year from each of the

prisoners were marched into a
wide field where a big ditch had
been dug. The head of the Ge
stapo directed the service in uni
form. The order was given for
the Jews to disrobe completely.
Then followed an indescribable
scene, men and women crying,
crawling on their knees, begging
j the German executioners for mer
cy, but without any effect. These
unfortunates, including young
children, were lined up at the edge
of the ditch and mowed down
with machine guns. The execu
tion over, the ditch was filled
without anyone bothering to as
certain whether some of the vic
tims were still alive.
| “These executions continued for
! 14 days and it has been estimated
that the number of executed
reached about 14,000, among
whom were several hundred
Dutchmen and fifty to a hundred
Belgians. The executions, which
took place during the daytime,
were filmed."
