Fritz Julius Kuhn was president of the German American Volksbund and a nasty, hateful character who worked in service of National Socialism in the United States. He wound up in trouble and in jail for mishandling funds, and once the U.S. got into the war, he found himself arrested as an enemy alien and sent to spend time in the interment camp on Ellis Island. He was kicked out of the country, and then arrested again by U.S. Occupation Forces and sent to Dachau in 1947 as part of the Denazification effort of Gen. Lucius D. Clay. Of course Dachau wasn't the Dachau of Kuhn's idol, so he unfortunately did not experience the camp of his intentions. He died in 1951, and that was that. Provenance: the Library of Congress, the pamphlet being a gift from the Bund.
In 1936 Kuhn wasn't yet interested in taming the U.S. for the Nazis, though he was interested in protecting it from the greatest evil of mankind--Communism.. Actually, it turns out to be Bolshevism, but the controlling power to this is"the war battalions of the Jewish capitalists of the stock exchange" which was "the international (J)ewish attack of world Marxism", which he said is what was attacking Germany, presently. There's a lot more of this rhetoric in the pamphlet...actually, that is all there is in it, this sort of language, written by a non-native speaking chemist walking in Hitlerian glory and not all that smart. He was smart enough though in his rants, and tirades, and his anger was such that he was able to get 20,000 people to attend a rally at Madison Square Garden in 1939 where amidst his adjectival malignancies he ranted against "Franklin Delano Rosenfeld" and his "Jew Deal", much like the language used in someone else's beloved Ezra Pound's traitorous broadcasts from Italy during the war. This was the straw that broke the stinking fascist's back, though, terminally pissing off Mayor Laguardia who went after Kuhn's taxes and found fraud and embezzlement. And so off he went. But not before ruining the memories of those people who witnessed their friends become engorged by his wrath and hatred, a ruined man with ruinous ideas who ruined people.
- Specifics: 23x15cm, and 7pp. Very surprisingly there are only two copies located in the WorldCat/OCLC, with one in the NYPL system and the other in the University of Texas system. I figured that there would be a lot of them--looking around now, there aren't, so it seems.
