Martin LutherOn the Jews and Their Lies

In his famous treatise, On the Jews and Their Lies, Luther urges the persecution of Jews:

“What shall we Christians do with this rejected and condemned people, the Jews? … I shall give you my sincere advice: First, to set fire to their synagogues … in honor of our Lord and of Christendom, so that God might see that we are Christians… I advise that their houses also be…destroyed…. I advise that their prayerbooks and Talmudic writings…be taken from them…. I advise that their rabbis be forbidden to teach henceforth on pain of loss of life and limb…”
