Flushing, N.Y.: Voice of the Federation, 1971. A single issue of the organ of the Federation of American Citizens of German Descent, a fraternal organization found in 1946. Much of the content for this issue relates to the Christmas season and German tradition, but other content illustrates the group’s politically dubious tendencies. The group’s honorary National Chairman, Austin App, replies to a Washington Post article - reprinted in full in this issue - that “smeared” him as a Nazi apologist and anti-Semite. The revisionist book, “Myth of the Six Million” is discussed favorably in a letter to the editor and there is coverage of The Freedom for Rudolph Hess Association. The most damning contribution comes from an article by an 18-year-old Gerhard Lauck titled, “Two Ethics.” Lauck was a member of the National Socialist White People’s Party and National Socialist Party of America before founding the NSDAP/OA in 1974. He became a voluminous distributor of neo-Nazi propaganda and was jailed in Germany for his activities in the 1990s. He currently operates out of Nebraska.
