12 Volumes of Bund Data.

12 Volumes of Bund Data In Possession of G-Men

Grinning broadly, Henry Hauch rides away in a police car after arrest at Yaphank, L.I.  “This,” says the heavy-set man who has described himself as camp manager," is a scheme by the Jews to get revenge.”

 IN THE FILES OF THE Federal Bureau of Investigation in Washington there are twelve volumes, of encyclopedia size, on the extent, activities and objectives of the German-American Bund in the United States.

J. Edgar Hoover, chief of the FBI, does not concern himself with investigation of insignificant groups.

The twelve volumes contain a careful, documented history of the bund from the time Nazi agents fro Germany first planted the seeds of Hitlerism in this country to present when the 65 locals of the bund stretch from New York to Los Angeles and the organization boasts of 200,000 “Storm Troopers.”


It boasts of 28 camps throughout the United States.

It boasts of four newspapers, strategically placed in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Los Angeles, for the dissemination of anti-Semitic, anti-Communist, and anti-democratic propaganda.

It boasts of four projected newspapers in Boston, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, and Seattle.

Nazi agents, according to government information, were sounding out the loyalties of German-American groups in this country even before Hitler became Germany’s Chancellor.

They planted the seed which ultimately became the German-American Bund, otherwise known as Amerika-deutscher Volkbund.

It is necessary now to narrow this picture to one man Fritz Kuhn.  A German by birth, Kuhn came to the Untied States in 1927.  He has worked as a chemist for the I-B Farmben Works, a German dye manufacturer.  In this country he became a chemical engineer in Detroit.

He took out citizenship papers and was admitted as an American citizen in 1932.  Last year he was elected national bund leader for a second term of four years. 

Under Kuhn, the organization really began to go to town.
