On The Jews And Their Lies


Part 1
Translated by Martin H. Bertram

I had made up my mind to write no more either about the Jews or
against them. But since I learned that those miserable and accursed people
do not cease to lure to themselves even us, that is, the Christians, I have
published this little book, so that I might be found among those who
opposed such poisonous activities of the Jews and who warned the Christians
to be on their guard against them. I would not have believed that a
Christian could be duped by the Jews into taking their exile and
wretchedness upon himself. However, the devil is the god of the world, and
