The following statement was taken from a contemporary account of Germany in 1939:
“Though the Fuhrer’s anti-Semitic program furnished the National Socialist party in the first instances with a nucleus and a rallying-cry, it was swept into office by two things with which the ‘Jewish Problem’ did not have the slightest connection.
