Subject: Sinking of S/S "Deptford," "Thomas Walton," and "Garoufalia".
It is proposed in replying to Norwegian notes, to admit only the sinking by a German U-boat of the S/S "Deptford", but to deny the sinking of the two other steamers. According to the data attached to the notes presented by the Norwegian Government, the grounds for suspecting a torpedo to have been the cause of the sinkings do in fact appear to be equally strong in all three cases. According to the Norwegian Foreign Minister's speech of the 19th January, the suspicion in Norway of torpedoing by a German U-boat appears, however, to be strongest in the case of the S/S "Deptford", whereas in the other two cases it is at least pretended that the possibility of striking mines has to be taken into account; this is considered improbable in the case of the S/S "Deptford" anyhow because other vessels had passed the same spot.
The assumption that the S/S "Thomas Walton" struck a mine may be supported, since the torpedoing occurred towards evening and nothing was observed and since furthermore several explosions took place in the same area owing to misses by torpedoes. In the case of the S/S "Garoufalia" a denial appears expedient, if only because a neutral steamer is concerned, which was attacked without warning. Since it was attacked by means of an electric torpedo (Eto), no torpedo wake could be observed.

Subject: Sinking of the Steamships "Deptford", "Thomas Walton" and "Garoufalia".
It is suggested that the Norwegian notes regarding the sinking
of the Steamships "Deptford", "Thomas Walton" and "Garoufalia" be answered somewhat in the following manner:
As a result of the communication from the Norwegian Government, the matter of the sinking of the steamships "Deptford", "Thomas Walton" and "Garoufalia" has been thoroughly investigated. The following facts have thus been ascertained:
The steamer "Deptford" was sunk by a German U-boat on the 13th December, as it was recognized as an armed enemy ship. According to the report of the U-boat Commander, the sinking did not take place within territorial waters, but immediately outside. The German Naval Forces have strict instructions not to undertake any military operations within neutral territorial waters. Should the U-boat Commander have miscalculated his position, as appears to be borne out by the findings of the Norwegian Authorities, and should Norwegian territorial waters have been violated in consequence, the German Government regrets this most sincerely.
As a result of this incident, the German Naval Forces have once again been. instructed unconditionally to respect neutral territorial waters. If a violation of Norwegian territorial waters has indeed occurred, there will be no repetition of it. As far as the sinking of the steamships "Thomas Walton" and "Garoufalia" is concerned, this cannot be traced to operations by German Uboats, as none of them were in the naval area indicated at the time of the sinkings.

Subject: Sinking of the Greek steamship "Garoufalia."
It is suggested that a reply be sent to the Greek note to the effect that nothing is known to the German authorities about the sinking of the steamship "Garoufalia" by a German U-Boat.
If, either through communications made to the Norwegian Government as a result of the letter 1st Naval Operational Staff 23808/39 secret of 21.12.39 or through the testimony of witness, the presence of a German U-Boat in the area in which the "Garoufalia" was sunk has already become known, it is suggested to answer the Greek note to the effect that a blacked-out ship bearing no illuminated neutrality markings was sighted by the U-Boat in the area concerned and was therefore not regarded as a neutral ship. It may therefore be possible that the steamship was mistaken for an enemy auxiliary warship.

This is the effect of the 12 suggestions which the wisest of the Jews gave to the members of their race 50 years ago. And when once again 50 years will have passed, then the Jews will not come together and announce that they are now 'the sovereigns of the world.' Then, perhaps, their graves will proclaim that this people of murderers and criminals has after all met its deserved fate.

The Sturmer takes and always did take the same stand towards Bolshevism. But the Sturmer is not of the opinion that one should turn away from Bolshevism. The world must occupy itself with Bolshevism. These Jewish gangsters and general criminals must again and again be pointed out to the world in all their dangerousness and vileness. A punitive expedition must come against the Jews in Russia. A punitive expedition which will provide the same fate for them that every murderer and criminal must expect. Death sentence and execution. The Jews in Russia must be killed. They must be exterminated root and branch. Then the world will see that the end of the Jews is also the end of Bolshevism.
