Der Stürmer ("The Assailant") was an extremist antisemitic weekly that spearheaded Nazi propaganda in the war against the Jews. The paper was founded in the spring of 1923 by Julius Streicher, and appeared until the end of World War II in 1945. Streicher was known as a particularly extreme and cruel anti-Semite, and this is evident in the contents of his newspaper. The newspaper engaged in wild antisemitic incitement throughout its years of existence, and it is considered to this day the most radical newspaper that came out against the Jews during Nazi rule, and in general. The type of the newspaper was rude, aggressive and easy to understand. The articles consisted of simple, clear and blatant propaganda sentences, repeated anti-Semitic cartoons, antisemitic stories (which were also intended for young people - An antisemitic story appeared in each issue in sequels about the 'Jewish merchant'), and photographs of Jews in ghettos accompanied by antisemitic hate speech. As part of the newspaper's aggressive antisemitic line, he adopted as its motto the saying invented by Heinrich Treichka - "Jews are our disaster!" (In German: "Die Juden sind unser Unglück"). This slogan was engraved on the bottom of the title page of every issue since 1927, and was also used by the Nazis at official conferences. The peak circulation of the newspaper reached about eight hundred thousand copies.
