“He who fights the Jews battles the Devil.” — Julius
The Pimpfs of the Hitler Boys’ Organisation are proud of their black uniform. We are the real Hitler men, say
the Pimpfs. Although men is a bit overdone, they are right in one thing: the Pimpfs are loyal to the Leader in life
The Pimpfs are talking — in this concluding story — among themselves. One of them describes a National
Socialist Party march in München on the previous November 9th.
Next to the Leader was General Göring, who was formerly severely wounded at the Felderrnhalle. I saw, too,
Reich Ministers Doctor Göbbels, Frick, Rust and the Reich Leader Rosenberg, Amann, Schwarz, our Reich
Youth Leader Schirach, and many other old campaigners. Before the Leader was carried the Blood Flag, which
received its consecration on November 9th, 1923. And in front of the Blood Flag marched a man who, in 1923,
too, was in the front and the thick of it: Julius Streicher.
Another Pimpf says: We know him all right. He is the enemy of the Jews. That is why all the Jews hate him.
You are right, says another. The Jews hate and insult only those whom they most fear. And they are afraid of
Another Pimpf, hitherto silent, draws attention to a placard, which reads:
Julius Streicher is speaking in the Folk’s Hall about The Jews are our Undoing!
Let us go, says Konrad. I’ve so long wanted to hear him.
Erich says: I heard him once in a meeting two years ago.
Tell us about him! cry the other two Pimpfs.
Erich relates: The meeting was packed. Thousands of people were there. At first, Streicher spoke about the
years of struggle and the great achievements of the Hitler Reich. Then he came to the Jewish question. What he
said was so clear and simple that even we youngsters could understand. He took his examples always from life
itself. Once he was very funny and made jokes, so we all had to laugh. Then he became deeply earnest and it
was so still in the room, you could have heard a pin drop. He spoke of the Jews and their revolting crimes. He
spoke of the great danger the Jews were to the whole world:
Without a solution of the Jewish question, no salvation for mankind!
That is what he said to us. We all understood. And when at the end he had called Victory, Hail! for the Leader,
we had a storm of enthusiasm for him. Streicher had spoken for two hours. It only seemed like a few minutes to
Yes, my dear friends! I shall always think of that meeting. And I shall never forget the speaking choir which we
heard at the end of the gathering:
From the Germany Hitler created resounds a cry to the whole world: Free yourselves from the Jewish hand and save both folk and Fatherland!
The book for German children, published by Julius Streicher called the Giftpilz (The Poison Mushroom) sought to educate children in the ways of the jüdischen Parasiten. It is still true today and there are lessons to be learned from it, not just for children either!
