#176 - Albert Einstein Typed Letter Signed Estimate: $10,000+

Four years before World War II, Einstein aims to inform "the local non-Jewish circles about the true nature of Hitler's regime"

TLS in German, signed “A. Einstein,” one page, 8.5 x 11, March 1, 1935. Letter to Jesse M. Mendheim, in full (translated): "Thank you very much for sending me a copy of 'Stürmer' and for your kind invitation. Unfortunately, I cannot accept the invitation in the foreseeable future, since I must restrain myself for the sake of my work. It may be of interest for you to know that last summer I received a large number of issues of this disgraceful monument to German barbarism directly from the editorial office of 'Stürmer.' I could let you review this collection, should you need this kind of material. It would be very beneficial if my collection could be used to inform the local non-Jewish circles about the true nature of Hitler's regime. In my opinion, there is not enough happening here in that direction." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope.

Founded in 1923 by Julius Streicher, Der Stürmer was a virulently antisemitic weekly German tabloid-newspaper and served as a key propaganda outlet for the Nazi regime. The paper carried the motto, 'The Jews are our misfortune!,' and Streicher began calling for the extermination of the Jewish race in the paper as early as 1933. By bringing these barbaric subjects to light, Einstein hoped to inform others of the horrific nature of the Nazi regime. A remarkable, ominous letter that foreshadows the tragedy of the Holocaust.
