These Are Your Leaders!
Germans! You are going into this war with starvation rations. You have had to tighten your belts year by year. Listen to what the American papers say about your leaders who have caused you this suffering.
In the American Press on September 20th the widest publicity was given to detailed statements showing that:
Göring Göbbels Ribbentrop
Hess Himmler Ley Streicher
have placed through men of straw in safe custody abroad not less than
in cash, securities and life insurance policies.
The well known Chicago Daily News says:
"No matter what may happen to Nazi Germany, as the result of the present war, Hitler's right hand men - if they escape with their lives - will be able to live on the fat of the land. If they don't their families will be able to do so."
The New York Journal-American states:
"South American, Japanese, Luxemburg, Swiss, Dutch, Egyptian, Estonian, Latvian, and Finnish banks are depositories for the Nazi fortunes, and considerable sums are held in the United States by Nazi friends and German Shipping Companies."
These Are Your Leaders!
The American Press publishes the following details:
Göring: the Führer's appointed successor, has tucked away abroad not less than
RM 30 030 000
Göbbels: has smuggled out to Buenos Aires, Luxemburg and Osaka (Japan) the trifle of
RM 35 960 000
Ribbentrop: is the richest. He has managed to pile up in Holland and Switzerland
RM 38 960 000
Hess: Deputy Führer, has salted down in Sao Paolo and Basle
RM 16 430 000
Ley: has feathered his nest well out of his Kraft durch Freude racket with
RM 7 564 000
Himmler: the man whose job it is to see that no German takes more than 10 Marks abroad, has exported for himself
RM 10 550 000
Streicher: the "guardian of German honour" also has his little nest egg abroad
RM 3 000 000
The New York Journal-American remarks:
"It may bring some satisfaction to learn that so many Nazi Party chieftains have taken for granted that some day the time will come, when they would be unable to stay in Germany any longer."
