Celler Moves for German Relief Despite Agitation

Download PDF for this date

A resolution calling for the relief of starving Germans has been introduced by Representative Celler of the Tenth District, New York.

Congressman Celler, a few days ago, said he was staying his hand from introducing such a bill upon opening of Congress because of the persecution of the German Jews.

“I have already introduced a resolution for the relief of starving Germans” Congressman Celler declared, “as I do not feel it just to visit the sins of the irresponsibles on the innocent and guiltless victims”.
