Read the following declassified United States Military Intelligence
Division Report on the Protocols of Zion and you will see that the
US MID believed the Protocols to be authentic. Everything else is
just Zionist noise.
THE POWER AND
AIMS OF INTERNATIONAL JEWRY
The below given report is a U.S. War Department investigation and
evaluation of issues generated by Jewish power. It was compiled in
August 1919 and given SECRET classification until 1973. A hard copy
of this document may be obtained from U.S. National Archives in
Washington DC, - its number is 245-1.
THE POWER AND AIMS OF INTERNATIONAL
[page 1 of doc. begins]
The recent emphasis in American public opinion placed on the
part the Jews have been taking in world events, has seemed to
warrant the Department in undertaking a preliminary study of the
particular matters in controversy and also the larger question
of the scope of Jewish influence in world affairs today. Among
the more important points around which controversy has waged
I. The authenticity of the
so-called Jewish Protocols, which purport to set forth a
Jewish plan, centuries old, of world domination.
II. The question of how far Jewry as such is connected with
Bolshevism, not only in the Soviet Government of Russia and
Hungary, but in all the other countries of the world and
particularly Germany and the United States.
III. The various phases of the Polish question:
(a) Whether the Jewish
anti-Polish propaganda in the United States has been
based on actual widespread Jewish Pogroms in Poland, or
(b) Whether, on the contrary, the stories of pogroms
have been greatly exaggerated as a part of a deliberate
Zionist propaganda to get for the Jews in Poland
minority rights which both factions of American Poles
publicly denounce as amounting to the creation of a
state within a state.
(c) How serious is the nation-wide secret boycott
against all Jews and Jewish goods recently started by
the American Poles and other Slavic sympathizers ?
[page 2 of doc. begins]
It is self evident that in controversies such as these the Jews
are strongly on the defensive on one side while the Slavic
peoples are bitter in their denunciation upon the other. The
important thing for us, however, is the fact that Americans in
the main do not sense the situation nor appreciate its dangerous
Unfortunately there is too much
truth in the charge made by the Slavs that the reasons for this
is that the American press is so largely owned and controlled by
the Jews. Witness the fact that the so-called Jewish Protocols
which constitute by far the most serious charge against the Jews
of those above enumerated, have never been mentioned in any
American publication other than the official report of the
Senate Judiciary Committee containing the testimony about the
I. THE JEWISH PROTOCOLS:
The so-called Jewish Protocols purport to be the official
pronouncement of the program of Jewish world domination drawn up
by Theodore Herzl the founder of the modern Zionist movement and
presented by him in 1897 to the inner circle of the first
Zionist Congress at Basle, Switzerland. A summary of them was
first published in Russia about 1905 by Serge Nilus who claims
to have had a copy stolen from the Zionist files in France.
In 1915 [barely legible on doc.
possibly reads 1916] Nilus wrote another book entitled "IT IS
NEAR RIGHT AT THE DOOR", dealing largely with the danger of the
Jew in world affairs. Here he sets out what he claims to be the
full and exact translation of the Protocols. This book was
published early in 1917 at a Russian Monastery near Moscow, but
shortly after the first Russian Revolution of 1917 it was
ordered suppressed and so even in that country it was
exceedingly difficult to obtain.
[page 3 of doc. begins]
Dr. George A. Simons testifying before the Senate Committee said
(Pages 135, 136 and 137 of the Record):
Senator Nelson: Are Lenine and
Trotsky Yiddish ?
Mr. Simons: Lenine is from a very fine old Russian family,
so we are told, and is intellectually a very able man. A
fanatic, he was called the brains of this movement. Trotsky
is a Jew. His real name is Leon Bronstein.
Senator King: Why are they so bitter toward religion,
especially the Christian religion ?
Mr. Simons: There is a gentleman here in America who last
night called on me, Dr. Harris A. Houghton, I think is his
full name. I knew him out in Bay Side when I was the pastor
of that church. He called on me last night. He is a Captain
in the United States Army. I had not seen him for six years.
He asked me whether I knew anything about the anti-Christian
element in the Bolshevik regime. I said, "Indeed I do". I do
know all about it."
He said, "Did you ever come
across the so-called Jewish protocols ?" I said "Yes, I have
had them." "I have a memorandum" he said, "and last winter
after much trouble I came into possession of a book which
was called "REDUSTI, ANTI-CHRIST." Now, Dr. Houghton in the
meantime had investigated this. He had come into possession
of this book, which is quite rare now, because it was said
that when the edition came out it was immediately bought up
by the Jews in Petrograd and Moscow.
That book reflects a real
organization. That book is of some consequence. But the
average person in official life here in Washington and
elsewhere is afraid to handle it. Houghton says that even in
his intelligence bureau they were afraid of it.
Senator King: Tell us about the book. What is bad about it ?
Is it anti-Christian ?
Mr. Simons: It is anti-Christian and it shows what this
secret Jewish society has been doing in order to make a
conquest of the world, and to make the Christian forces as
ineffective as possible, and finally to have the whole
world, if you please, in their grip; and now in that book
ever so many things are said with regard to their program
and their methods, which dovetail into the Bolshevik regime.
It just looks as if that connected in some way.
Now, I have no animus against the Jews, but I have a great
passion for truth: If there is anything in it I think we
ought to know. The man who wrote it is considered a
truth-loving man, a man held in the highest esteem by the
authorities of the Russian Orthodox Church. ******
Senator Nelson: In this book that you refer to is there
anything that goes to show that this Bolshevik government of
Russia are supporting, directly or indirectly, this book of
[page 4 of doc. begins]
Mr. Simons: Before answering
that question I should like to see that translation, because
I do not know how this thing has been done. (A pamphlet was
handed to the witness.)
Senator Nelson: You have seen the original book ?
Mr. Simons: Yes. Some very finely educated Russian generals
of note have told me that they considered this as an
authentic thing, and they say the marvelous part of it is
that nearly all of that is being executed under the
It is true by his extravagant
statements since giving this testimony Dr. Simons has been
somewhat discredited. However, while on the stand, under oath,
he spoke with unusual care, and other people who had been in
Russia at the time covered by his testimony were unable to
criticize his story. Those of his statements reprinted in the
press brought out the first public condemnation of Bolshevism by
such Jewish leaders in America as Louis Marshall.
Recently the Department was able to examine what is said to be
the only copy now in the United States of this Nilus book
containing the Protocols. At that time photostatic copies of the
Russian text were made for the Department files.
As stated above, there has been no reference in the press to the
existence or the contents of the Protocols, nor to Dr. Simons
testimony concerning them, although there was wide publicity to
this more general charges as to the part the Jews were taking in
the Bolshevik Government and an equally wide publicity to the
vigorous denial of leading American Jews to this letter charge.
Nevertheless, the testimony concerning the Protocols, which was
given at an open public hearing and which has recently been
published in the official Senate Report, has given them a
certain limited publicity.
We have been informed at second hand
an English translation of the Protocols has been shown to
Justice Brandeis and Jacob Schiff each of whom vigorously
disclaimed their authenticity, Mr. Schiff asserting that they
are a creation of German propagandists. This explanation seems
almost impossible considering the circumstances of the Russian
publication - facts which
[page 5 of doc. begins]
perhaps were not made known to him, at the time he saw the
translation, much less probable than the suggestion said to have
been made by Justice Brandeis that the Protocols are the
creation of a fanatic Russian anti-Semite.
It is not the purpose of this memorandum to make any argument
toward establishing their genuineness. As previously stated,
[hand written insert illegible] the Protocols are attributed to
Herzl himself and one certainly must note the identity of
thought found in the Protocols on the one hand and in Herzl's
public writings, and in the writings of other prominent past and
contemporary Jewish leaders on the other. (Note 1.)
Protocol 1, page 1: "According to
the law of being might is right."
Protocol 1, page 3: "Our right lies in force."
Herzl, "The Jewish State", page 2: "For this, as indeed every
point which arises in the commerce of nations, is a question of
might. ******* In the world of today and for an indefinite
period, it will probably remain so, might precious right."
A number of similar illustrations
such as the quotations relating to the "Terrible power of the
Jewish purse" are set out in Appendix A.
[page 6 of doc. begins]
Some of the important events which have occurred since 1897 have
fulfilled in a striking manner the predictions and aims
expressed in the Protocols themselves. (Note 2.)
Note 2: The coming of a
world war is predicted which the Jews are to secretly promote.
The creation of the chaos of Bolshevism is described as to be
worked out by Jews all over the world as a step towards Jewish
world dominion. For a fuller discussion of these and similar
illustrations see Appendix B.
Furthermore, it is impossible to read far in the Protocols and
in the public writings of Hess, Herzl and other Jewish Leaders
without being impressed with the constant reiteration of certain
fundamental principles and ideals. Among the more important of
these around which the forces of Jewry are now rallying are the
November 22, 2001
THE POWER AND AIMS OF
The Jews are a nation held
together by their common enemies. (Note 3.)
With the Jews Nationality and
Religion are inseparable and co-extensive.
All groups of Jews from the
extreme radicals (Poole Zionist) to the most conservative,
are united in this National Religious Movement.
Once a Jew always a Jew.
The teachings of the Talmud
still exercises a profound influence on Jewish life.
Judaism and Socialism are
different expressions of the same movement.
The Jews consider themselves the
original exponents of internationalism and the League of
Nations. (Note 4.)
Note 3: See Herzl’s "Jewish State" page 4, and Dr.
Solomon Prest, of the United Synagogues of America. (New York
Times, June 17, 1919, page 3.)
Note 4: For a full discussion of these principles with
citations from Moses Hess, Theodor Herzl, Bernard Lazarre, H.
Sacher and the lectures now being distributed by the Zionist
Organization in America, see Appendix C.
[page 7 of doc. begins]
In any event the Protocols are of suggestive value in the study
of present-day International Jewry. They indicate possible or
probable fields of Jewish activities, aims and methods, and as
such, without relying on them at all as evidence in themselves,
we have used them as a point of departure for some phases of our
[page 8 of doc. begins]
II. HOW FAR IS JEWRY,
AS SUCH, CONNECTED WITH BOLSHEVISM, NOT ONLY IN THE SOVIET
GOVERNMENT OF RUSSIA AND HUNGARY BUT IN ALL OTHER COUNTRIES OF
THE WORLD AND PARTICULARLY IN GERMANY AND IN THE UNITED STATES:
(a) There is, of course, a vast
amount of material in the Department relating to this
problem. Here, however, a mere outline will be sufficient to
indicate the general tendencies. The following quotation
will illustrate the widespread participation of Jews in all
(1) Theodore Herzl’s "JEWISH
Page 8. "Educated Jews without means are fast becoming
Page 10. "When we sink we become a revolutionary
proletariat, the subordinate officers of the
(2) Theodor Herzl’s "CONGRESS ADDRESSES".
Page 13. "That the Jews constitute a disintegrating
element is habitually maintained."
(3) Lecture on "SOCIAL ZIONISM” published and now
circulated by the Zionist organization of America.
Page 4. "From the days of the prophets down to the
present time the Jew has been the inveterate enemy of
tyranny and our contribution to the ranks of labor
leaders and social philosophers is one of the marvels of
history. In ancient times it was Isaiah, Jeremiah and
the lesser Prophets who thundered agains those who added
"house to house” while the common people were suffering
against huger and privations. The thinkers and leaders
of the Socialist Party during the last century, Karl
Marx, Ferdinand Lasalle and many others were Jews, even
though some of them sold their birthright for "a mess of
pottage". In fact any careful historian must come to the
conclusion that the Jews are a race representing the
great social factor in modern history."
(4) Rabbi Judah L. Magnus, who has been very closely
associated with Jacob H. Schiff, in a speech before the
Jewish Labor Congress January 15, 1919 published in the
JEWISH FORUM for February 1919 states:
Page 722: "When the Jew gives his thought, his devotion
to the cause of the workers and of the dispossessed,
[page 9 of doc.begins]
of the disinherited of the
world, the radical quality within him there, too, goes
to the root of things, and in Germany he comes as Marx
and a Lasalle, a Haas and an Edward Bernstein; in
Austria he becomes a Victor Adler and a Friederich
Adler; in Russia a Trotsky. Just take for a moment the
present situation in Russia and Germany. The Revolution
set creative forces free, and see what a large company
of Jews was available for immediate service. Socialist
Revolutionaries and Mensheviki; Bolsheviki; Majority and
Minority Socialists whatever they be called ******* Jews
are to be found among the trusted leaders and the
routine workers of all those revolutionary parties."
(b) RUSSIA !
Many of the witnesses who testified before the Senate
Committee stated quite definitely that most of the prominent
Bolshevik leaders were Jews. The following are quotations
from one or two:
(1) Mr. Theodor
Kryshtofovitch (page 424 Senate Record):
"Most of the people governing Russia now are Jews. I am
not against Jews in general. They are a very capable and
energetic people, but as you Americans say, the right
man must be in the right place. Their place is in the
Commission Houses, in Banks, in the offices, but not in
the government of a fine agricultural country. They do
not understand anything about agriculture, about
production, about keeping materials and about
distribution ********* I am talking about Bolsheviki;
because if you take our Bolshevik Government, Lenine is
a Russian and all these constellations that are turning
around this sun are Jews. They have changed their names.
For instance, Trotsky is not Trotsky but Bronstein."
Again on page 431 he says:
"They oppose the Russian
clergy and the Russian clergy oppose the Bolsheviki, and
the Russian priests are treated very badly. For
instance, they are set to do street work, cleaning the
streets, paving streets, digging ditches, and so on. The
workmen told me several times: ‘The Bolsheviki are
sending out priests to work in the streets. Why do they
not send their Rabbis ?’ And that is true. The Jewish
Rabbis are not sent to work on the streets."
Colonel V. S. Hurban, the leader of the Checho-Slovaks
in Russia (page 444 of the Senate Record):
"It is also logical that the morals of the officials
should be corrupt. I cannot deny it because it is a
fact, and it is useless to deny it, that in the Soviets
from the beginning there have been a very large
percentage of Jews. It cannnot be denied. I can explain
myself. We cannot blame them because it is just their
[page 10 of doc. begins]
The following appears in a despatch to the Department,
describing conditions in Hungary, quoted on page 37 of the
confidential weekly report of the Division of Western
European Affairs for June 28, 1919:
"Of the Communist
Commissaries (of whom 25 out of 32 are Jews), several
are assigned to each department."
As a sample of general frank
public comment on the Bolshevik regime in Hungary may be
cited the following from an article on "The Forces of
Disintegration” appering in THE NEW EUROPE of June 19, 1919:
"The internal situation in
Hungary is comparatively simple at this moment. The
issue of the war involved the bankruptcy of the whole
ruling oligarchy and of the Jewish parasites who had
battened upon them for over a generation past. But while
the former fell with a resounding crash, a large section
of the latter suddenly laid violent hands upon the
machine of the State, and have since the Spring been
endeavoring to recover, under a mask of advanced
Communist theories, fragments of what the old
imperialism had lost to the Magyar State. **********
Meanwhile we need be under no illusions as to the
present regime in Hungary. In Budapest such illusions
have long since vanished, and all who come from there
tell the same tale. The present Communist Government of
Budapest is merely a glorified edition of "Sussex
Street". Bela Kun - a convicted thief who is proud of
his record and brags publicly of his capacity for lying
- is on a par with Peter the Painter, while his
colleagues (save a couple of honest doctrinaires, and an
occasional figurehead selected for purposes of
camouflage) are altogether worthy of him.
The early efforts of the Bolsheviki to get control in Russia
were financed by German Government, largely through the
German Jewish banking firm of M. N. Warburg and Company of
Hamburg, established in 1798, one of the most powerful banks
in all of Germany, and instrumental in directing the
international policy of the old German Empire. Max Warburg,
head of this firm, cooperated in this matter with his
brother Fritz, Financial Attache of the German Legation at
Stockholm and as such, head of and general paymaster
[page 11 of doc. begins]
for the German spy system. Practically all of the men who
participated in the negotiations with the Bolsheviki in
turning over these funds were Jews.
A number of the returning Military Attaches as for example,
Lieutenant Waldo from The Hague, have emphasized that the
personnel, methods and aims of the new German Foreign Office
were, in a large measure, the same as those of the old
Therefore, the statement in the BRITISH CONFIDENTIAL WEEKLY
REVIEW for June 4, 1919 (page 2) would seem at least
"Evidence is accumulating
that the German Government directed the Munich
Revolution through Agents provocateurs. The "ROTE FAHNE”
seems to have been under Government control, and an
organization called: "VEREINIGUNG ZU BEKAMPFUNG DES
BOLSHEVISMUS”, and espionage association covering the
whole of Germany, had exact information on every phase
of the Munich rising. This association is headed by
Prussian Officers and works in connection with the

THE POWER AND AIMS OF
... Concerning the leaders of
the Munich Soviet Revolution, Ben Hecht, himself a radical,
in a cable published in the CHICAGO DAILY NEWS said:
"As for the Communist
leaders in Bavaria, for instance Toller, Levine, Muhsam,
Landauer, Lipp, and, in fact, all whom I met in the
April Soviet days in Munich, were Jews."
As to the general Jewish
influence in Germany, Hecht states:
"One of the tragi-comic
sides of the feverish German situation today is the
position of the German Jews. Although less than one per
cent of the German population consists of Jews, fully
75% of its present leaders - conservative and radical -
are Semitic. The only political party which has no
Jewish leaders is the centre or Catholic party,
controlled by Mathias Erzberger. In Weimar, however, I
have seen numerous centrist delegates to the national
assembly whose Catholicism was political rather than
As for the majority socialist, it must be remembered
that the socialist party was founded by Karl Marx, a
Jew, and co-ordinated by Ferdinand Lasalle and the elder
Liebknecht, also Jews, while it was economically
developed by Singer, another Jew. On the other hand the
most active anti-socialist leaders in Germany - Theodor
Wolff, George Bernhard and a dozen others of similar
standing - are likewise Jews.
Hugo Haase, leader of the independent socialist party,
is a Jew, as are practically all of its more important
leaders, with the exception of Dr. Rudolph Breitscheld.
Nearly all of the newspaper editors and publicists whom
I have encountered, from Maximilian Harden up and down
the line, are Jews, and, so far as I can make out,
nearly all the Berlin bankers are of the same race."
[page 12 of doc. begins]
On April 8, 1919, the LONDON MORNING POST in an editorial
commenting on the part the Jews were taking in Russian
Bolshevism and the further fact that two of the leading
British Jewish papers were openly pro-Bolshevik, stated:
"We have mentioned several
times the disagreeable fact that the Russian Bolsheviks
were Jews. These Jews are at the present moment in
control of the Russian Government and they have powerful
friends in all the Allied countries, who are helping
them. We have appealed to the British Jews, but appealed
so far in vain, to dissociate themselves from the cause
which is doing the Jewish people terrible harm in all
parts of the world. In reply the Jewish press shower
upon us not only abuse but threats."
This article brought forth a
letter published in the LONDON POST of April 23, 1919 signed
by the following ten leading British Jews:
Major Lionel de
Sir Philip Magnus, Bart,
Alderman Sir Marcus
Right Honorable Sir
Harry S. Samuel, M.P.
Mr. Leonard L. Cohen
Sir Israel Gollancz
John Monash, G.O.N.G.
Mr. Claude G. Montefiore
Sir Isidore Spielmann,
The letter stated in part:
"We have read with the
deepest concern and with sincere regret certain articles
which have recently appeared in two closely associated
Jewish newspapers in this country on the topic of
Bolshevism and its "ideals". In our opinion, the
publication of these articles can have no other effect
than to encourage the adoption of the theoretic
principles of Russian Bolsheviks among foreign Jews who
have sought and found refuge in England. We welcome,
accordingly, your suggestion that British Jews should
"dissociate themselves from a cause which is doing the
Jewish people harm in all parts of the world". This is
profoundly true, and we, on our own behalf and on behalf
of numbers of British Jews, with whom we have conferred,
desire to dissociate themselves absolutely and
unreservedly from the mischievous and misleading
doctrine which those articles are calculated to
disseminate. We repudiate them as dangerous in
themselves and as false to the tenets teachings of
Partly in order to counteract the mistaken policy of the
newspapers referred to, the League of British Jews was
founded in November 1917. The proceedings and views of
the League are published in a monthly bulletin, entitled
JEWISH OPINION which can be obtained at the Offices of
the League, 708-709, Salisbury House, E.C. 2, and which
may eventually be merged
[page 13 of doc. begins]
"in a larger journal
appearing at more frequent intervals. For we thoroughly
concur with your criticism that the "British Jewish
Community”, most of whom, as you rightly say, are by no
means in sympathy with this (Nationalist) crusade, are
being served very badly by their newspapers". Meanwhile
we take this opportunity of repudiating in public the
particular statements in those newspapers to which you
have felt it your duty to call attention."
(f) UNITED STATES
Under date of February 15, 1919 Louis Marshall in denying
the charges made before the Senate Committee that the New
York East Side was Bolshevist and had furnished many Russian
Bolshevists Commissars said: (Page 379 of the Senate
"I read the Yiddish
newspapers and am constantly called into consultation
and conference with respect to every imaginable movement
that can concern the public which affects the East Side,
and I can, therefore, speak with authority when I say
that there never has been a baser slander uttered than
to charge by innuendo that the Jews of the East Side are
In a report dated May 20, 1919,
M. C. Keyes, Treasury Secret Service Agent stated:
When Dr. Simons, formerly a
resident of Russia made the statement that "90% of the
Bolsheviks in New York were Jews”, the entire radical
element in New York rose in arms and through the
influence that they could exert they villified a man
whose only crime was being too modest in his
calculations. I am satisfied that instead of 90% it
should be nearer the actual amount to say that 95% of
the Bolsheviks are Jews. Only recently I had the
opportunity to look over the records of one Soviet
branch in New York. Out of a membership of 700, 625 were
Jews. ****** ”
On June 17, 1919 a conversation
was overheard between Nuorteva and Charles Recht, both
Bolshevist Jews, in New York, in which it was stated that
the entire 500,000 Jews of the East Side were Bolshevists.
Vice Consul R. B. Dennis testyfying before the Senate
Committee said: (Page 178 of the Senate Record)
"Mr. Dennis: I do not know
whether this belongs in this hearing or not, but a thing
that interested me very much was to discover a number of
men in positions of power, commissars in the cities here
and there in Russia, who had lived in America.
Senator Nelson: Who had been graduated here ?
Mr. Dennis: Yes.
[page 14 of doc. begins]
Senator Nelson: Where had
they lived mostly, in New York ?
Mr. Dennis: In the industrial centers. I met a number of
them and I sat around and listened to attacks upon
America that I would not take from any man in this
country; but I took it over there because I was asking
favors, and I was not in a position to get into an
altercation, as I did not want to get in jail.
Senator Nelson: Were the men who had lived for years in
this country, and had gone back there, occupying
prominent positions in the Bolshevik Government ?
Mr. Dennis: Yes Sir.
Senator Wolcott: In the main, of what nationality were
Mr. Dennis: Hebrew.
Senator Wolcott: German Hebrews ?
Mr. Dennis: Russian Hebrews. The men that I met there
had lived in America according to their stories,
anywhere from 5 to 12 years.
[page 15 of doc. begins]
III. THE POLISH QUESTION
(a) Has the Jewish anti-Polish
propaganda in the United States been based on actual
widespread Jewish pogroms ?
Louis Marshall, Judge Mack, Jacob Schiff, Israel Cohen, the
British Zionist investigator, and other Jewish leaders all
Hugh Gibson, United States Minister to Poland on the other
hand says the stories have been greatly exaggerated. For
this statement he has been bitterly villified by Mr.
Marshall and the American-Jewish News. Mr. Gibson also
reported that many of the exaggerated pogroms stories were
traceable to German propaganda sent out by way of
Copenhagen. In this he is corroborated by the report of
Colonel Mason of the Military Intelligence, General Staff,
who spent a month in Poland during March and April.
The following quotation from Professor Askenazy, a
Polish-Jewish educator and historian of Warsaw, appearing in
the NEW YORK WORLD of July 2, 1919 and reprinted in FREE
POLAND for July 16, 1919, would seem to present an accurate
"The outside world is
getting an entirely exaggerated idea, and I see my
co-religionists in New York are acting on what was
evidently unverified information coming from many
sources. They have denounced Poland for things which
never happened. With Poland young and struggling and
beset with enemies it has enough trouble without having
attacks from our people, who have always received better
treatment from the Poles than from any other people in
Eastern Europe. ****
November 22, 2001
THE POWER AND AIMS OF
It is true that there have been
local outbreaks against the Jews, for special reasons, due
to upset conditions, and tales about Jewish profiteering,
particularly from Russian Bolshevik Jews, who are trying to
upset the Polish nationalist spirit. **** I remark with
wonder that the leaders of America’s greatest Jewish
societies are lending themselves to this movement, for all
this agitation in America is only helping Germany and
Bolshevik Russia. *** Whenever one Jew has been hurt in
Poland, Jews say ten were killed and Germans say a thousand.
If a Jew is killed in conflict, like the Jews in Vilna who
fought with the Bolsheviki, the German press immediately
spreads a tale of a Polish pogrom in Vilna."
[page 16 of doc. begins]
(b) Have the Jewish Zionists as a part of a definite
propaganda to get for the Jews of Poland minority rights,
deliberately exaggerated the stories of pogroms in Poland ?
The BILL OF RIGHTS adopted at the American-Jewish Congress
at Philadelphia on December 19, 1918, requested the Peace
Conference to grant to the Jews in new or enlarged states to
be created by the Conference, autonomous management of all
Jewish communal institutions and insisted that such autonomy
be a condition precedent to the creation of any such state.
Poland being the largest and most important new state thus
to be formed, it was natural that the Jews should center
their efforts on establishing this principle there.
To quote from one of their own number, (Israel Cohen, in the
WASHINGTON POST, May 30, 1919):
There is only one way in which the civil equality of the
Jews can be preserved and that is by their being given the
rights of a national minority. The Jews should be given
autonomy as far as the administration of their religious,
cultural, social and charitable affairs are concerned, but
they should also be constituted a separate electoral college
with the right to proportional representation in the Polish
Parliament. And in order to establish a good working
understanding between them and the government, it is
advisable that there should be a ministry of Jewish affairs,
the head of which should be responsible to a representative
council of the organized Jewish communities."
The Polish protest against the published demands of the Jews
was followed by a publicity campaign to create a sentiment
hostile to Poland, principally in the United States, for use
at the Peace Conference in support of the Jewish claims.
In the United States the propaganda adopted by the Jews took
two forms: (1) Newspaper attacks, and (2) organized protest
meetings, parades and similar demonstrations.
(1) A careful reading of the prominent articles concerning
alleged atrocities against the Jews in Poland which began
appearing simultaneously in the leading American papers
about the middle of May, shows a striking similarity in
form, in substance and in
[page 17 of doc. begins]
headlines, a similarity so striking as to have no other
reasonable explanation than that of a thoroughly planned
propaganda. Information has come to us at second-hand that
Reuben Fink, Washington representative of the Zionists,
supervised the dissemination of this newspaper material.
Confidential despatches from Copenhagen describe a German
inspired organization abroad to supply news of pogroms for
publication in the American-Jewish press.
Many of the first stories published in May were based on a
report of Israel Cohen published in the LONDON TIMES of
February 14, 1919. For example, on May 28, 1919 the NEW YORK
HERALD and the WASHINGTON POST ran front page accounts by
Herman Bernstein of Cohen’s report, but the phrasing was
such as to lead the readers to believe that they described
Pogroms which were still going on, whereas, Cohen was
actually reporting as to events in November, December and
January when, as is well known, during the chaos attendant
on the triangular struggle with the Germans’ retreating and
attempting to turn the country over to the Bolsheviki, and
the Poles asserting their National Independence against both
groups, there were, of course, many Jews, Poles, Germans and
Bolshevists killed. Moreover, Cohen only recited the killing
of 161 people during the entire three months covered by his
Contrast with this the statement of Rabbi Tittlebaum (State
Department I. B. 861.4016/245 [decipherment may not be
accurate]) concerning the persecution of the Jews in
Southern Russia, in which he tells of the killing and
wounding of hundreds of thousands, 5000 being killed in the
town of Proscorof alone. There has been little publicity
about this in the United States, probably because it would
defeat the purpose of the Zionist propaganda as showing that
the outbreaks against the Jews in Poland were more
restrained and accompanied by much less loss of life that
those in other places where chaotic conditions prevailed,
such as Southern Russia.
[page 18 of doc. begins]
A further illustration of the way false stories of
atrocities were used is shown by the articles about Vilna.
The Department received word in May that the Zionist Bureau
at Berlin reported 200 Jews killed at Vilna. On June 8, 1919
the WASHINGTON POST, NEW YORK TIMES and others carried a
story from Paris under a large headline saying: "1600 Jews
killed at Vilna." From Gibson’s reports (telegram June 17,
1919), it appears that 64 Jews were shot and at least ten of
them were admitted by the Jewish representatives to have
been killed in the house-to-house fighting by which the
Poles took the city from the Bolsheviki.
(2) In all the principal cities of the United States mass
meetings were held, preceded by parades for which the Jewish
workmen obtained a half holiday. The principal meeting was
held at Madison Square Garden, New York on May 21, 1919
following a series of parades and other thoroughly organized
demonstrations in which a large number of the Jews of the
East Side participated. The most important addresses were
made by Charles E. Hughes and Jacob Schiff. Mr. Hughes in
defending himself against the charge by the Poles that he
was playing politics, and had no facts upon which to base
his protest, stated that "a careful investigation should
speedily be had, but in the meantime the report which have
come in - vouched for by such men as Judge Mack and Louis
Marshall, men of recognized standing, ability and probity, -
justify in my opinion, the most earnest protest."
In determining whether Mr. Hughes was warranted in accepting
this ex parte statement, it should be noted that both Judge
Mack and Mr. Marshall, as well as Jacob Schiff, are all
members of the Executive Committee of the Jewish Kehillah in
New York, which Committee has as its Chairman Rabbi Judah L.
Magnus who, at one time, was very pro-German and is now an
open and avowed advocate of Bolshevism both in Russia and in
the United States. As to the Kehillah itself, while it is
ostensibly interested solely in Jewish Community work, some
question has been raised to its alleged pro-German and
[page 19 of doc. begins]
Bolshevik tendencies. Furthermore, Mr. Marshall’s partner,
Samuel Untermeyer, received considerable notoriety at the
Senate hearing on German propaganda because of his
pro-German activity. Mr. Untermeyer has now appeared as
chief counsel for the Rand School and the American Socialist
Society in defending their charter.
In the NEW YORK TIMES of May 24, 1919, Felix M. Warburg is
quoted as saying:
"It is to be regretted that the protest meetings of the Jews
against the Pogroms which have taken place, in the desire to
prevent further ones, appear in the papers as an attempt by
the Jews to prejudice Americans against the new Polish
"Naturally the Jews are deeply interested in the welfare of
their co-religionists, of whom about 5,000,000 are not
living in the new Poland. What these protests mean is simply
an earnest pleading that every possible step, official and
unofficial, be taken by the new Polish Government to prevent
outbreaks by an excited populace which, feeling its new
strength and old prejudices may, if not held in check, break
loose when not watched. That is all we hope for."
As a commentary on this interview the following extracts
from an article entitled "PEACE WITHOUT HONOR” by G. K.
Chesterton, appearing in THE NEW WITNESS, an English
anti-Semitic paper, of April 18, 1919, page 494, seems in
"What concerns us in the crisis of Europe is the facts, and
when we know we are dealing with the facts of hatred, we
connot be confused or even delayed by the fiction of
hypocrisy. ***** and the fact is not that the Jews wish well
to the new State, but that the Jews are at this moment using
all their keen intellectual activity and their deep racial
loyalty, working all over the world at high pressure, to
prevent the new Polish State coming into existance at all."
******** We know that if they lose their port (Danzig) it
will not be by any act of English public opinion or any
public opinion, but by the most secret of all secret
diplomacy; that it will not even be given up by the English
to the Germans, but by the Germans Jews to other German
As a further comment in the attitude of the Polish Jews
themselves toward the new Polish State may be quoted the
following from Colonel Mason’s report:
"Poland has recently put into effect a universal draft law,
and the army is being mobilized under it. The men
[page 20 of doc. begins]
are collected at training stations and are receiving
training under the general supervision of a French General,
the actual instructors being Poles who have had military
training or experience in either the German, Austrian or
Russian armies. The army is very largely composed of Poles.
Upon the passage of the draft law, 90% of the Jews of the
country called for what is known as the blue ticket, which
is an exemption certificate given to those who are aliens.
Incidentally this has an important political bearing as
being an official announcement by 90% of the Polish Jews
that they consider themselves not Poles but Jews per se."
As a result of the publicity given these Jewish and German
inspired anti-Polish protests, both in this country and
abroad, the Poles were defeated and "The Combined Jewish
Committees of the World” headed by Mr. Louis Marshall were
able to secure (1) the special provisions set out in
Articles 8 to 12, inclusive, of the Polish Treaty and, (2)
the general acquiescence in these provisions on the part of
the American Press. The American Poles, however, are more
bitter than ever in their denouncement of these articles as
undemocratic and un-American. Because of this attitude on
their part it seems in point to analyze the articles in
Article 8 - provides that racial, religious and linguistic
minorities shall have the right to establish, manage and
control, at their own expense, charitable, religious and
social institution and schools, with the right to use their
own language and to exercise their own religion freely
Article 9 - provides (Paragraph 1) that in public schools
where there is a considerable proportion of Polish nationals
of other than Polish speech the children shall be taught in
their own language.
Article 9 - (Paragraph 2) Racial, religious and linguistic
minorities shall be assured an equitable share in the
enjoyment and application of the sums which may be provided
out of public funds ***** for educational, religious or
charitable purposes. (This paragraph would appear to
supersede in a large measure Article 8 above.)

THE POWER AND AIMS OF INTERNATIONAL JEWRY
Article 10 - Educational Committee appointed locally by
Jewish communities will provide for distribution of
proportional share of public funds allocated to Jewish
schools in accordance with Article 9 and for organization
and management of these schools. The provisions of Article 9
concerning the use of language in schools shall apply to
[page 21 of doc. begins]
Article 11 - provides that Jews shall not be compelled to
violate their Sabbath and that no elections or registration
shall be held on a Saturday.
Article 12 - provides that the foregoing provisions
constitute obligations of international concern and shall he
placed under the guarantee of the League of Nations, no
change to be made without the consent of majority of council
of League of Nations which will be binding on the United
States and the leading Allies. Any member of the League
Council can call attention of the Council to possible
infraction, and Coucil may take jurisdiction of question.
Mr. Marshall in an interview of July 24, 1919 said:
rights which have been secured have not been affected in
favor of the Jews alone, but for all minorities."
connection it is worthy of notice that Article 10 and 11
relate solely to the Jews.
In an earlier interview of June 30, 1919 (NEW YORK TIMES,
July 1) Mr. Marshall said:
"Nothing thus far accomplished by the Peace Conference
exceeds in importance the Polish Treaty. **** It is
literally a charter of Liberty and the final act of
emancipation of those who, for centuries, have been bereft
of elemental human rights. ******* It enshrines in the law
of nations the eternal principles of human liberty that
constitute the distinctive features of the American
Constitution by means of which, despite the divergent racial
elements of our population, we have become in fact as well
as in spirit, a homogeneous, patriotic, just nation. We have
long appreciated what at last is to enter into the
consciousness of all people - that the true purpose of
government cannot be realized until majorities look upon
minorities as their equal before the law."
This statement is misleading because it gives the reader the
idea that the rights granted the Jews in Poland are only
those enjoyed by Jewish Americans whereas, quite the
contrary is true. Another interesting point is that this
interview bears the same date as the text of the Polish
Treaty, namely, June 30, 1919, but the interview appeared
July 1, 1919 in the NEW YORK TIMES, while the Treaty was
withheld until the day following.
Premier Clemenceau as quoted in the NEW YORK TIMES of July
2d defended the provisions above set out saying:
"The following articles are of a rather different nature, in
that they provide special privileges to certain groups of
[page 22 of doc. begins]
these minorities: ****
"Six - Clauses 10 and 12 deal specifically with the Jewish
citizens of Poland. The information at the disposal of the
principal Allied and Associated Powers as to the existing
relations between the Jews and the other Polish citizens has
led them to the conclusion that in view of the historical
development of the Jewish question and the great animosity
aroused by it, special protection is necessary for the Jews
of Poland. These clauses have been limited to the minimum
which seems necessary under the circumstances of the present
day, viz., the maintenance of Jewish schools and the
protection of the Jews in the religious observance of their
It is believed that these stipulations will not create any
obstacle to the political unity of Poland. They do not
constitute any recognition of the Jews as a separate
political community within the Polish State. The educational
provisions contain nothing beyond what is in fact provided
in the educational institutions of many highly organized
modern states. There is nothing inconsistent with the
sovereignty of the State in recognizing and supporting
schools in which children shall be brought up in the
religious influence to which they are accustomed in their
home. Ample safeguards against any use of non-Polish
language to encourage a spirit of national separation have
been provided in the express acknowledgment that the
provisions of this Treaty do not prevent the Polish State
from making the Polish language obligatory in all its
schools and educational institutions."
In an editorial in the NEW YORK TIMES of July 25, 1919 it is
frankly admitted that the rights granted to the Jews in
Poland would not be tolerated for a moment in this country
and offers the weak excuse for differentiation that our
immigrants came here voluntarily while the racial minorities
in Eastern Europe have been there for thousands of years.
This utterly misses the real point of the criticism, going
to the ultimate justice of the rights granted.
Says the TIMES:
"Those in this country who have feared
that our participation in this arrangement will make it easy
for European nations to demand similar liberties for
naturalized citizens in this country and thus make
impossible any attempt at real Americanization are somewhat
unduly alarmed. Most of the rights included in the term
"cultural autonomy" are already possessed by everybody in
America. Some of them are not: the provision for separate
schools in which the mother tongue of the pupils is the
language of instruction, though the language of the State
must also be taught, and taught satisfactorily, would only
perpetuate a condition which German immigrants have brought
about in some parts of this country; but the further
provision that such schools should receive part of the State
funds would, of course, be inadmissible here - though we
have heard in the last year or two of American public
schools in which German is about the only language known to
teachers and pupils. Such guarantees would also perpetuate
the foreign language press.
[page 23 of doc. begins]
"But no racial group in America has any reason or right to
claim privileges such as are provided in the Polish Treaty,
since they are all recent immigrants who of their own choice
came to a country which had its own institutions and used
the English language. The racial minorities of Eastern
Europe have dwelt alongside other people, intermingled
beyond any hope of complete separation, for hundreds and
sometimes thousands of years."
In further relation to Mr. Marshall the following additional
facts are of interest:
(1) On June 7th the Department issued a statement giving a
summary of Mr. Gibson�s reports to the effects that the
stories as to pogroms were greatly exaggerated.
(2) On June 10th Mr. Marshall gave out in Paris a report
from his personal representative in Poland in which it was
"In its horror and system the acts recalled the worst
epochs of the Middle Ages."
(3) This was followed on June 17th by a statement from Mr.
Marshall making a bitter and vituperative attack on Mr.
Gibson, charging that "Gibson�s report is necessarily based
on the merest hearsay, parrot-like repetition of what has
been told him in court circles." Many specific charges of
cruelty were also set out including several which have since
been reported by Mr. Gibson as unfounded.
This statement was played up in "THE JEWISH DAILY NEWS� (New
York) of June 18th under the headlines "Mr. Gibson
Indicted". The article stated:
"Mr. Louis Marshall, chairman of the Jewish Delegation in
Paris, has not permitted the grass to grow beneath his feet.
No sooner did Mr. Hugh Gibson, whose nomination as
Ambassador to Poland is now before the Senate, report to the
State Department that there were no pogroms in Poland that
Mr. Marshall set to work to show that Mr. Gibson "has
reported contrary to facts".
Through Mr. Charles A. Selden,
the Paris correspondent of the "NEW YORK TIMES", Mr.
Marshall issued a statement giving chapter and verse of the
atrocities committed against the Jews in Poland by the Poles
themselves. From the statement which appears on this page,
it will be seen that the Poles admitted the pogroms, yet Mr.
Gibson never heard of pogroms or knows anything of them. In
other words his report is an attempt to whitewash the
In view of Mr. Marshall's statement, and the
attitude adopted by Mr. Gibson, we do not think the latter
is the proper person to represent this country in Poland.
His nomination is, as we have already said, now pending
before the United States Senate. We have felt it our duty to
protest against Mr. Gibson's confirmation by the Senate and
have sent the following telegram to Senator Calder,
Wadsworth and Penrose:
[page 24 of doc. begins]
'Louis Marshall's indictment of Hugh Gibson, him
deliberately reporting conditions in Poland contrary to
facts, as printed in today's 'NEW YORK TIMES', makes Mr.
Gibson unfit to be American Ambassador to Poland. We
appeal to you to block confirmation of his nomination.'
"We want to go on record that a man who in toto denies the
wantom slaughter of human beings, of old men and women, of
young girls and little children, is not the man to whom
should be entrusted so important a post as the American
Ambassadorship to Poland.
If the stories of the pogroms had been found to be untrue we
would have accepted Mr. Gibson�s report, but when he bases
his finding upon mere hearsay, we must dissent."
In relation to the deliberate campaign to defeat Mr.
Gibson's confirmation, shown in the above quotation, added
significance attaches to the confidential report to the
Department from Secretary Lansing contained in telegram No.
2910 of June 26, 5 p.m. that,
"Judge Brandeis and Felix
Frankfurter in conversation with Gibson yesterday, intimated
that confirmation of his appointment by the Senate might be
jeopardized by the nature of his reports which they stated
had done great harm to the Jewish race."
On June 19, 1919 the American Mission stated in a
telegram to the Department that Marshall and Cyrus Adler
advised Ambassador Morganthau to decline to serve on the
President's commission to investigate pogroms against Jews
and Jewish persecutions "urging that no Jew be appointed".
The telegram continued:
"Mr. Morganthau is in doubt and
requests that you promptly ascertain the opinion of Schiff,
Elkus, Nathan Strauss, Wise, Rosenwald and Samuel Lachman as
to his acceptance."
On June 23, 1919 the Department sent duplicate telegrams to
Louis Marshall at Paris and Felix Frankfurter in London
conveying the following message from Judge Mack:
"All parties consulted advised Morganthau to decline
appointment. Schiff, Elkus, Mack, Rosenwald, Wise, Nathan
Strauss in wire to President are suggesting postponement
until his return of commission and legal and technical
advisors, but if inadvisable suggesting he consult Marshall
and Frankfurter before acting. We have been allowed to see
all of Gibson's despatches. Statement commented on by
Marshall erroneously attributed to Gibson, who is shortly
due in Paris. Have requested that Gibson's report be shown
to Marshall. After seeing them and Gibson, advise strongly
additional statement by Marshall. Mack."
[page 25 of doc. begins]
It seems quite possible that these Jewish leaders realized
that an honest report would destroy the ammunition for their
anti-Polish propaganda and show up more strikingly the utter
unfairness of the attack on Mr. Gibson�s confirmation.
November 22, 2001
of THE POWER AND AIMS OF INTERNATIONAL JEWRY
... (7) On July 24 Mr. Marshall stated that:
"The horror of the Pogroms in Poland and Ukrainia will
‘stagger the world’ when the truth becomes known. Tens of
thousands of Jews have been killed. The pogroms were not so
much the result of an organized movement as they were the
outgrowth of unsettled anarchistic tendencies in the
countries where they occurred. They found expression in
attacks of Jews."
Heretofore he has never mentioned the Ukraine in his
interviews, except very casually.
On August 1, 1919 Mr. Marshall made public the following
telegram dated July 30, 1919 from Leo Motkin, Secretary of
the "Combined Jewish Committee of the World” at Paris:
"Zuckerman arrived and confirms former communications. He
reports new and terrible Pogroms which occurred during June
at Kaminets, Podolsk, Kitaigorod, Ourinine, et cetera. The
latest news is certified by three Rabbis and by other Jewish
representatives at Khotine. I know these men who are from
the Ukraine. They state that altogether 120,000 have been
killed. In Proskurof alone 3,964 inhabitants and numerous
passing people have been killed and 2,000 wounded. Among the
killed were 1500 school children. Ukrainian Judaism fears
total extermination. It is impossible to check the exact
figures. In all of the pogroms undoubtedly dozens of
thousands have been massacred."
The Department has in its files a despatch (heretofore
referred to on Page 17) dated April 2, 1919 from the
American Commissioner at Constantinople quoting Rabbi
Tittlebaum in which he stated hundreds of thousand of Jews
had been killed and wounded in the Ukraine and that 5000
were killed in Proscorog alone. This information undoubtedly
came to Mr. Marshall in April. Why then, has the story
remained unpublished all these months ? It is asserted by
the Poles to be because such a publication would have
weakened, if not utterly destroyed the case which they claim
the Jews were so laborously building up in support of their
minority rights in Poland.
[page 26 of doc. begins]
On August 2, 1919 the day following the publication of the
above telegram, the Ukrainian National Committee in New York
issued a statement in part as follows:
"There are not and have not been pogroms in Ukraine outside
the zone of Bolshevism. While unfortunately it probably is
true that there have been many innocent victims of lawless
bands in Ukraine, just as there have been Jewish victims of
the Polish soldiery in Galicia, the killings are the work of
the Bolsheviki and the Bolsheviki alone." ******
"The Ukrainian People’s Republic has granted autonomy to all
national minorities, including the Jews. Special privileges
have been granted the Jews and members of the race are not
only members of the General Rada but are included in the
ministry. The Ukrainian paper money even bears inscriptions
in Jewish characters. It is significant fact that the
Ukrainian Jews have never raised a single protest against
Petlura’s government, but have always supported it
"Petlura, of course, has not been able to prevent pogroms in
the portion of Russian Ukraine controlled by the Bolsheviki
or the part of Galician Ukraine overrun by the Polish
imperialists. He is making progress in both sections,
however, and when he has restored the entire Ukrainian
territory to the Ukrainians there will be no massacres in
Whether the cooperation between the Jews and the Ukrainians
here shown is born simply of their mutual hatred of the
Poles, or whether in addition the Ukrainians are receiving
financial support from the Jews, it is in any case
particularly interesting just now when the Department is
being flooded with anti-Polish protests from the Ukrainians
and Lithuanians in this country and in Canada.
At least one group of the Ukrainians, were openly pro-German
and pro-Austrian during the war and there is evidence that
in this connection it should be recalled that the Ukrainian
separatist movement was started by Austria.
As to the Lithuanians and their relations with the Jews here
in America may be cited the full page ad which appeared in
the NEW YORK TIMES, NEW YORK WORLD, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, BOSTON
POST and WASHINGTON POST on June 3 and 4, 1919, protesting
[page 27 of doc. begins]
Imperialism and Jewish Massacres". In this ad appears a
letter from the Lithuanian National Council to the Secretary
of the American Committee for the Defence of the Jews in
Poland, which contains the following:
"Your cause is our cause as well. The cause of all oppressed
people the world over strikes a responsive chord in our
hearts, but you have in common with us the additional fact
that your oppressors are also our oppressors."
"Using Bolshevism as a pretext, Poland has invaded, and is
now occupying, large parts of Lithuania. Its troops are
there indulging in atrocities so horrible that the entire
liberal opinion of the world stands aghast and raises the
query once more whether Poland can really be trusted with
the powers of self-government."
[page 28 of doc. begins]
(c) How serious is the nation-wide boycott against all Jews
and Jewish goods recently started by the Americans of Polish
descent and their Slavic sympathizers ?
The Foreign Language Bureau of the Government Loan
Organization of the United States Treasury in a report of
June 4, 1919 states:
"The demonstrations of May 21st, participated in by the
Jewish people all through the United States in the form of a
public protest against the persecution of the Jews in
Poland, has produced on the part of the Polish population in
the U. S. A. (nearly 4,000,000) a well managed, quietly
conducted commercial and financial boycott of all Jewish
merchants and vendors.
Both sides of the controversy have had ample public hearing
in the Press of the U. S. A. The Poles privately maintain
that the Jews are disappointed in the development of Poland
into a free and independent Nation as the ambition of Jewish
leaders for many generations has been to make of Poland a
Jewish economic state commanding the commercial and
financial channels of Eastern Europe, under a German
Be that as it may, the Polish resentment of the Jewish
propaganda against them is deep and bitter and their spirit
of retaliation in this country proceeds against the Jewish
pocketbook. The boycott is now well advanced all through
this country and is active in every channel of trade,
extending even to places of amusement.
From another source comes the information that other racial
groups, namely, Russians, Ukrainians, Roumanians,
Lithuanians, Czecho-Slovaks, Jugo-Slavs, Findlanders, Letts,
all of Slavic origin will join in this Jewish boycott.
Operations for management of same are now under way."
The Department has received a number of telegrams from the
American-Polish organizations calling attention to the
danger of racial conflicts here and "condemning the
insincere tactics of the Jewish imperialists". (See
particularly telegram from mass meeting of 15,000 in Boston
June 8, 1919 representing 200,000 Polish-Americans in
Massachusetts, and telegram of June 15, 1919 from mass
meeting at Newark, N.J.) This last telegram also charges
that Jewish employers in America have discharged Polish
workers and Jewish landlords have evicted Polish tenants.
If such oppression is practiced on any large scale by the
American Jews it will inevitably strengthen the boycott
movement among the American Slavs and continue to fan the
flame of mutual hatred between the two nationalities.
