Golem... Geissel der Tschechen DIE ZERSETZUNG DES TSCHECHISCHEN NATIONALISMUS - Golem The plague of the Czechs - the destruction of Czech nationalism. By Nazi War Criminal WALTER JACOBI, ORBIS Publishing, Prague 1942. German.
An anti-Semitic essay accusing the Jews and the Freemasonry of subverting the Czech government under the pretext of achieving national independence. The author uses as an example the legend of the Golem from Prague, which was created by the Mahara'l in the 16th century in order to prevent bloodshed from the creator of the Christian communities in Europe against the Jews. And accuses the Jews of working by virtue of the Jewish "Golem", who is internally opposed to the nationality in which he lives, In this case, against the Czech people. According to him: "The old Jewish legend about the golem "the real Prague man" took on a new meaning in the twenty years of Czech sovereignty. The golem that enslaved the Czech people defeated them through spiritual confusion, and made them incapable of liberating themselves from the Jewish oppressor...". On the cover is a statue of the Mahara'l created by Ladislav Jan Šaloun in the Prague City Hall and placed there since 1917, Also, the book is accompanied by photographs of the Jewish cemetery in Prague, as well as various documents that "incriminate" the Jews. When the book was published all Czech newspapers controlled by the Nazis were obliged to publish a review of this book, and describing it in a positive light as a literary masterpiece.
