German transcription of the Julius Streicher segment (without umlauts) and English translation [Anatol Steck, 12/03/2010]:
Dem deutschen Volke wird der Vorwurf gemacht, es habe den Antisemitismus, den Kampf gegen die Juden in die Welt gebracht und sei deshalb ein barbarisches Volk. Wer dies behauptet sagt die Unwahrheit. Schon vor Jahrtausenden waren nicht-juedische Voelker gezwungen sich gegen juedische Eindringlinge zu wehren. Wenn dieser Kampf bis in die Gegenwart herein kein Ende fand, so traegt die Glutschuld das juedische Volk das von der Ausbeutung der Nichtjuden lebt und sich verheissen liess es sei auserwaehlt der Herr der Welt zu sein. Der Voelkerfriede wird erst dann in die Welt gekommen sein wenn dem Nutzniesser der Kriege die Moeglichkeit fuer immer genommen ist die Voelker gegeneinander zu hetzen. Wer sinnig geworden ist der weiss: ohne Loesung der Judenfrage keine Loesung der Menschheit.
The German people are accused of bringing into this world the antisemitism, the battle against the Jews and that they therefore are a barbaric people. Who asserts this speaks an untruth. For millennia the non-Jewish people have been forced to defend themselves against the Jewish intruders. If this battle has not yet come to an end until the present times, so lies the fervent fault for this with the Jewish people who live from the exploitation of the non-Jews and who have declared themselves to be the chosen masters of the world. Peace among the peoples will only have come to this world after the beneficiary of the wars has been prevented forever from having the ability to instigate the peoples against each other. He who has wisened up knows: without solution of the Jewish question there can be no solution for mankind.
