Hitler peace offer to Reds reported

Stockholm, Sweden (UP) –
The newspaper Morgon-Tidningen, in a dispatch purportedly emanating from Bern, Switzerland, said today that Adolf Hitler extended a peace offer to Russia recently through Hiroshi Oshima, Jap Ambassador to Berlin.

The offer reportedly carried a German renunciation of all German interests east of the 1939 demarcation line in Poland.

Germany, the reports said, also renounced all political interests in Finland and the Baltics and in the Balkans except for Hungary.

Simultaneously, Morgon-Tidningen said, Tokyo was reported to have asked the Russians to mediate peace between Japan and the Anglo-Americans.
