Download PDF for this date

An explanation of the difference between the German Socialist Party and the Social Democratic Party is the subject of an article published in the local organ of the anti-Semitic German Socialist Party. “There is no difference on economic questions”, says the article, “between the two parties. Both are opposed to capitalism. But there is a great difference in the attitude towards the Jews. The German Socialist Party fights against Jews, who are a harmful and disruptive element by reason of their world hegemony.

“The war against the Jews is a sacred task of the German Socialist Party. It is pledged to enlighten the working class and make them aware of the Jewish peril. The social Democrats and the Communists, on the other hand, are the tools of the Jews”, the article states.

Dr. Zevi Chajes, Chief Rabbi of Vienna, who arrived here on December 2, is leaving today on the steamer. “Albert Balin” for Europe.
