Montreal Beach to Post “no Jews Allowed” Sign

Download PDF for this date

A sign “No Jews Allowed” will be displayed at the bathing resort of Cape St. Jacques, twenty miles from Montreal, according to information gained by two local Jews who recently visited the beach and who received a very unfriendly reception.

The owner of the resort explicitly told these Jewish visitors that Jews are not welcome there and that in the future they will be barred entirely from the beach. It is believed that this discrimination comes as a result of the unfailing anti-Semitic agitation which has been carried on during the past year by certain Montreal French papers.
