which was obviously hyping Wallace R. Deuel's new book People Under Hitler, in which he wrote:
Das Schwarze Korfs, official organ of the SS and the police, reported in March of 1937 that when the nazis came to power they found that approximately 2,000,000 men belonged to homosexual clubs and associations of one kind or another in the Reich. Even pederasty was organized in Germany.
Wallace R. Deuel (supposedly a non-Jew 1) was a Chicago-born political scientist who worked at the American University in Beirut between 1916 - 1929, and from 1934 - 1941 was a correspondent in Berlin for the Chicago Daily News 2 (so was surely a fluent German speaker). He wrote anti-German books 3, many anti-German newspaper articles 4, anti-German radio plays 5, and even advised Walt Disney on anti-German propaganda cartoons 6. In 1942 he joined the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) as special assistant to OSS's director William J. Donovan. From 1954 - 1968 Deuel held numerous senior positions in the CIA in which he oversaw propaganda, and he was also the CIA representative at the White House during the Kennedy administration. 7
The article below reports on a lecture Deuel gave in Maryland on March 22, 1943. It reads:"The Nazis set out in the beginning to destroy whole peoples. They expected to obliterate from the earth not less than 6,000,000 Jews as a beginning."
