Nazi-era newspapers being sold on Berlin streets





Reproductions of Nazi-era newspapers, which are being produced by a British publisher, are being sold on the streets of Berlin.

The currently available edition of Der Angriff (The Attack), originally published in 1933, has the front page headline "Hitler Chancellor of the Reich" and features a commentary from Joseph Goebells.

The editor of the project, Sandra Paweronschitz, a historian, told The Times: "From today you will have a unique opportunity to read what information was available to your grandparents and your parents."

However, a Jewish Berlin resident told the newspaper: "We're a tad nervous. The Gaza action is propelling thousands on to the streets chanting anti-Israeli slogans - it's not a great moment to give publicity to Joseph Goebells."
