Anti-Nazi drawing published in the PM newspaper

Object | Accession Number: 1991.182.11

In 1934, something some Nazi had written. This was it: "How high Horst Wessel towers over that Jesus of Nazereth." Horst Wessel was a rough neck, a panderer, one of Hitler's hooligans. He was killed in a street brawl, and he is a Nazi hero. This is the way the Nazis really feel about the Church. They once tried to prove that Jesus was a Nordic.
