What lies did Streicher tell in his speech? To what emotions did his speech appeal? Why did he use the word defensive to describe the action he would like Germans to take?
The night before the boycott, Joseph Goebbels, the newly appointed Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda, gave a speech in which he referred to the Jews of Germany as “guests.” He told his audience, “If they believe they can misuse our hospitality they are sadly mistaken.” What is Goebbels implying about German citizens of Jewish descent? About their right to live in Germany?
