Rome (Jan. 2)
Luigi Luzzatti, the veteran statesman writing in the Corriere de la Sera complains of the persecutions against national minorities in the new European states. Long a protagonist of the small nations, especially of Poland, M. Luzzatti asserts that of the minorities the Jews are the chief sufferers, especially in Poland. “We demanded,” he writes, “that the Powers deal justly with the small states. These have now become oppressors and we have to demand from them the equality and justice which was accorded them.”
Reviewing the events of 1923, the Corriere de la Sera takes a strong stand against the growth of anti-Semitism in the whole of Europe.
