Jews "Declare War" on Germany

1. Deniers like to claim that the Jews brought the Holcoaust on themselves (although they deny it happened!) because they "declared war" on Germany in 1933.

2. This quick fact will demonstrate that the denier claim is rubbish.

On Friday, March 24, 1933, the headline "Judea Declares War on Germany" was splashed across the front page of the British newspaper Daily Express. The transcript of the unsigned article can be read here.

The problem with this is simple: There was no such thing as "Judea," and no Jewish organization declared war on Germany.

The only organization mentioned in the article, the Board of Deputies of British Jews, did meet two days later to "discuss the German situation," but they did *not* support a boycott. (London Times, March 27, 1933)

3. Like most denier claims, this one is also demonstrably untrue.
