From Our German Correspondent
C EVERAL million members of Nazi organisations will attend this year's National Socialist Party Congress, which is to be held in September in Nuremburg.
It will be called " The Congress of Peace," because Germany wants to be left in peace by the others—said Dr. Ley in an interview to the representative of the Viilkischer Beobachter—and because she is determined to defend her peace by all means.
This Nazi Congress will he bigger and better than any one held before, and will last somewhat longer than those of the past.
Some of the monster buildings which are being constructed near Nuremburg have made considerable progress during the last year, but the gigantic Congress Hall, the " biggest in the world," will not be ready before another four or five years.
The Church and Motherhood
Herr Alfred Rosenberg, Hitler's special " Delegate for spiritual and ideological formation and education," will once more pronounce some
of the most important speeches. His headquarters are "ow busy preparing an exhibition which is to be held in the Norishalle in Nuremburg and which all visitors are expected to see.
Last year the show had as its object the fight against Bolshevism. This time it is entitled The woman and mother— source of life of the nation.
The Volkischer Beobachter has already given a survey of what the Rosenberg exhibition will be like. The historical section will apparently be largely concerned with anti-Christian and antiCatholic propaganda. It will " prove" how the celibacy of the clergy, the life in monasteries and convents, the influence of the Jesuits and so on, the Inquisition and the burning of witches in the Middle Ages has "deprived the German nation of hundreds of thousands of innocent girls and women " and has contributed to a. " denial of the sanctity of _motherhood."
Of course, women in pre-Christian times will be shown as the real models of German virtues, while the introduction of Christianity is said to have spoiled the race. . . . Alfred Rosen berg is the organiser of the show, and Rudolf Hess, Deputy of the Fiihrer, has agreed to be its "patron."
Special Congress for Nazis from Abroad
As in previous years there will be a special Congress for delegates from abroad. It is organised by the AO. (Foreign Organisation) of the National Socialist Party, and German Nazis from all over the world will be present under the leadership of their Gouietter BOhle. The gathering for the Auslandsdeutsche used to be held in Erlangen, not far from Nuremburg. This year, however, the second largest town in Istria, Graz, was chosen for the purpose.
Many prominent Nazi leaders, including Dr. Goebbels, Herr Rosenberg, Herr Hess, and probably Field-Marshal Goering, are expected to address the conference in Graz. The AO. of the Nazi Party has local groups and regional organisations in almost every country in the world, and publishes newspapers and information bulletins in most of them. It is—as Herr Bohle stated once again when he announced the Congress which is to be held in Graz—" strictly legal" and does not interfere in the political affairs of other countries.
Guests from Other Nations
Guests of honour from Italy, Japan, Spain, Hungary, Slovakia, Yugoslavia, and Bulgaria will be very numerous in Nuremburg, but it is expected that visi tors from other countries, particularly from Great Britain and France, will be much rarer than they used to be. For the foreign diplomats a special " village " has been built. Another building has ,en erected for the Foreign Office, which will work for the time of the Congress in Nuremburg and, not in the Wilhelmstrasse. Almost all the leading officials will be at the Party Congress.
