    Diary entry for July 16, 1941, written by Lothar Streicher, son of Der Stuermer publisher, Julius Streicher.
    Diary entry for July 16, 1941, written by Lothar Streicher, son of Der Stuermer publisher, Julius Streicher.

The excerpt reads:  "I'm surprised, have my own thoughts about it, and withdraw silently.  When I tell the others about this event, they think that Klotz [the principal of the gymnasium] is now absolutely ripe for Dachau.  I don't understand this type of pedagogics.  I regard it as cowardice to hide behind his authority. . ."

Images of Lothar Streicher's diary entries were made available by the International News Service in October, 1945, and were used to illustrate a series of articles about Julius Streicher, a defendant at the International Military Tribunal war crimes trial in Nuremberg.  The original INS caption reads: "This page from the diary of Julius Streicher's son, Lothar, records the youth's reactions during a visit to a Jewish ghetto:  'There is only one solution to the Jewish Problem . . . extermination!'"

Lothar Streicher joined the SS while still at school.  At the beginning of WWI he joined the Luftwaffe and trained as a pilot.  On the side, Lothar undertook special missions for his father to gather information about anti-Nazi activities.
