Joseph Goebbels Afraid Single Incident with Anne Frank May Make People Think the Nazis were Anti-Jewish

Joseph Goebbels

BERLIN, GERMANY – Documents in newly-discovered Nazi archives show that Joseph Goebbels was concerned that the single Anne Frank incident might make people think that the Nazis were anti-Jewish.

Goebbels expressed this in an op-ed in Das Reich:

"In the Anne Frank case, a low-level official in the Netherlands made a mistake. But this should not reflect on the Nazi party as a whole. The worst thing that could come out of this one incident is for people jump to the conclusion that the Nazis are anti-Jewish."

Goebbels finished by saying, "Remember, we are the most trusted name in Jews, and This is who we are."
