Anti-semites Invade Meeting of Rights League

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A meeting held in Hamburg Sunday night under the auspices of the French League for Human Rights, addressed by Professor Victor Basch, president of the League, was invaded by a group of boisterous anti Semites. The police were called to protect the audience from the attacks of the hooligans, who overturned chairs in an attempt to disrupt the meeting.

A gathering held in Berlin several days ago to advocate the principles of the League of Human Rights was attended by a large audience. No inter-Jewish passersby and sang anti-Semitic occurred.

On Kurfuerstendamm and other points in West Berlin on Sunday night anti-Semitc military groups annoyed Jewish passerby and sang anti-Semitic hymns. The police intervened, clearing the streets.
