Martin Luther - The Jews and Their Lies (pdf) - roflcopter2110

On the Jews and Their Lies is a 65,000-word anti-Jewish treatise written in 1543 by the German Reformation leader Martin Luther.
Luther's attitude toward the Jews took different forms during his lifetime. In his earlier period, until 1537 or not much earlier, he wanted to convert Jews to Christianity, but failed. In his later period when he wrote this particular treatise, he denounced them and urged their persecution.
In the treatise, he argues that Jewish synagogues and schools be set on fire, their prayer books destroyed, rabbis forbidden to preach, homes burned, and property and money confiscated. They should be shown no mercy or kindness, afforded no legal protection, and "these poisonous envenomed worms" should be drafted into forced labor or expelled for all time. He also seems to advocate their murder, writing "We are at fault in not slaying them".

Comments

Two things to note other than the ridiculous "Keep on Truckin'" cover:
- The title is slightly different from the title Martin Luther published
- Martin Luther was never a Dr.

Therefore this work, published by the "Christian Nationalist Brigade" in 1948, must be approached with skepticism.
