Withdrawal of Jolson’s “jazz Singer” Demanded

“Angriff,” a Hitlerite newspaper, today demands that Hugenberg, the principal owner of the Ufa Film Company and head of the German Nationalist Party, remove within three days the Al Jolson film, “The Jazz Singer.” The paper calls the picture a “nauseating all-Jewish propaganda film.” If Hugenberg doesn’t comply with this request the paper threatens that the National Socialists, throughout the country will compel the removal of the film.
