Das Reich an extremely influential paper printed each week in Berlin that provided thought provoking news and commentary on a wide variety of subjects. It was especially anti-Jewish and especially competent in providing photos and articles that other newspapers could not. The headline of the 9 May 1943 issue is "THE MOST DANGEROUS ENEMY - THE WAR AND THE JEWS" above a picture featuring New York rabbis David De Sola Pool and Aaron L. Weinstein. An in-depth article with a dozen or so photos in the issue for 5 April 1942 features Adolf Hitler School students in uniform and describes their life and curriculum. There are plenty of articles about the United States as well as articles and photographs from the war fronts.
