“Germany must perish!” ( Eng. Germany Must Perish! ) Is a book by Theodor Kaufmann, published in the USA in 1941. In the book, the author proposed that after the end of the war, the Germans should be sterilized and the territory of Germany divided between the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Czechoslovakia and Poland.

The author of the book, a little-known Jewish-American businessman, wrote that about 48 million Germans should be sterilized (all men under 60 and women under 45). According to his calculations, 20 thousand surgeons, carrying out 25 operations per day, will be able to sterilize organized teams within a month. Sterilization of the male population of the country will take three months. After two generations, the German nation should disappear.
Shortly after the release, the Nazis in Germany used the book in anti - Semitic propaganda, presenting it as evidence of the existence of a “ Jewish conspiracy " against the German people. Subsequently, some nationalists and Holocaust deniers also used the book to confirm their theories.
John Zimmerman, in his book, Holocaust Denial, writes that Kaufman’s work seems to have never been reviewed. Kaufman created Argyl Press, Newark, New Jersey to publish the book. On March 24, 1941, an article appeared in the American magazine Time devoted to a book where Kaufman was criticized and compared with Julius Streicher .
