"Every German must read this book" - an advertisement booklet for the books of the German racial science theorist Hans F. K. Günther - Rassenkunde Europas - "Race Studies of Europe" Munich 1929. and for the book Rassenkunde des jüdischen Volkes - "Race Study of the Jewish People". Accompanied by photographs of Eastern European Jews to demonstrate the inferiority of the Semitic race.

The booklet opens with scholarly recommendations about the book. And in the list of the main topics discussed in it: heredity research, the influence of Inner Asia, the Negro and the Near East, the effects of the Jewish spirit, the races in the Jewish people - environment, heredity, racial mixture, the distribution of the European races over the territory of Europe, the transmission of inferior hereditary characteristics, and more. It is further described that in the book "everything is treated in a much more scientific way than was possible in the past..." and that Guenther shows the origins of the Nordic race while studying the history of the nations. On the book "The Study of the Race of the Jewish People" it is written that Gunter investigates the physical and emotional diversity of the Jews, and explains why they are to blame for the frictions and conflicts between the countries. "Many writers and researchers have already dealt with the Jewish question and tried to get to the depths of the soul of Judaism... Some consider the influence of the environment on the private life of the individual, as well as the thousands of years of Jewish life on the formation of the entire abyss, as decisive; the others, among them Dr. Gunther, are convinced that hereditary characteristics are more important than the environment ... The Jews are also becoming a subject of research in the religious sciences and heredity... The topic "Jews in the present" is of course particularly informative and interesting; the various physical and emotional characteristics of the Jews of today are thoroughly examined based on the results of research on the study of races... All in all, this is a New book of Gunter which provides the growing Gunter community and all new members with in-depth information on the Jewish question...". In the list of topics covered in the book: some things about head and face measurements, peoples and racial mixing after the settlement of the Hebrews, the blood groups in the Jewish people, the influence of the Jewish spirit, the racial biological future, and more. At the end of the booklet appears an advertisement for Kurt Gerlach's book on the tribal origins of the German people and the superiority of the Aryan race.

The author [1891-1968] is considered one of the most prominent influencers on Nazi racist thought, and his theories stemmed from the Nordic ideology prevalent at the time. He continues to characterize and study the Jewish race in an attempt to determine its inferiority from a "scientific" point of view. In his opinion, the Ashkenazi Jew is a mixture of races from the East and the West, "a foreigner who drifted from Asia into the European fabric", and has different physical characteristics than the original Europeans. He divides the European population into six races, of which the Nordic race is the chosen one, and calls for the unification of the Nordic nations to ensure their control, and warns against mixing them with other races. It is known that Adolf Hitler encouraged Gunter's theories, and included his books in the list of recommended books for all Nazis to read.

The author [1891-1968] is considered one of the most prominent influencers of Nazi racist thought, and his theories stemmed from the prevailing Norse ideology at the time. He goes on to characterize and investigate the Jewish race in an attempt to determine its inferiority from a "scientific" point of view. In his opinion, the Ashkenazi Jew is a mixture of races from East and West, "a foreign plant that flowed from Asia into the European texture" and has different physical characteristics from those of the original Europeans. It divides the European population into six races whose chosen one is the Norse race, and calls for the unification of the Norse peoples to ensure their control, and warns against mixing them with other races. It is known that Adolf Hitler encouraged Hans' theories, and included his books in the list of books recommended for all Nazis to read.

Gunther joined the Nazi Party in 1932 as the only leading race theorist to join the party before coming to power in 1933. In 1935 he was declared by the party as "the pride of the National Socialist Party", and in 1940 he received the Goethe Medal for Arts and Sciences from Hitler. In March 1941 he was received as a distinguished guest at the opening conference of the "Alfred Rosenberg Institute for the Study of the Jewish Question" at which the possibility of sending Jews to labor camps was discussed. After the war he was detained and placed in detention camps for three years, but was released as it was determined that he had not incited to murder. Even after the fall of Nazi Germany, he continued to adhere to his racial theories, engaging in "state-sponsored family structure planning", and denying the Holocaust until his death.
