Corporation Apologizes for Broadcasting Einstein’s Address

Download PDF for this date

The Austrian Radio Corporation today apologized for transmitting Prof. Albert Einstein’s London address, stating that they did not know Prof. Einstein was to deliver propaganda for the Jews. The apology followed a vigorous attack upon the corporation by the anti-Semitic press. The papers abused Prof. Einstein, calling him a “relative gentleman and a relative scientist.”

The Radio Corporation, in its apology, stated that it had not realized the address was to be given at a Jewish banquet and to be concerned entirely with the political interests of European Jewry and Zionism.
