(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Sensational revelations concerning a planned boycott of Jews in Germany were made by Dr. Gerlach. well-known German republican leader.

From documents which he published in the metropolitan press it is seen that a secret anti-Semitic organization, to be known as the “Boycott Bund,” was formed for the purpose of discriminating against Jews. It is planned to extend the boycott to Jewish commercial firms, Jewish physicians, attorneys, and other professional men. The membership list of the Boycott Bund contains the names of 112 well-known Berlin firms including large Berlin iron works which have a branch in Palestine.

The Association of German Ex-Service Men and the Stahlheim Organization are supporting this boycott movement.
