(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The decision of the United States Senate concerning the return of alien property sequestrated during the war is interpreted by the German anti-Semites as a move to benefit German Jews.

Reporting the decision of the United States Senate, the “Voelkischer Beobachter”, anti-Semitic organ, declares that the major part of the $250,000,000 which was confiscated in the United States during the war and will now be returned, will go to Jews. The newspaper lists a number of banks which, it says, will obtain this sum, including the Deutsche bank, the Goldschmidt bank and the Dresdner bank, and claims that these financial institutions are “Jewish.”
