States German Cabinet Assured Jewish Rights Will Not Be Revoked

The German cabinet, in response to representations made by a spokesman for a Jewish organization of prominence, has declared that it is opposed to anti-Semitism, but stipulated that its statement in this connection is not to be made public under any circumstances, the Welt am Montag asserts.

The paper states that the government, in response to an inquiry from the Jewish representative as to whether its plans to maintain Jewish rights as hitherto, replied through Secretary of State Planck that it rejects anti-Semitism and that the fears of the Jews that their rights will be withdrawn are baseless. Secretary of State Planck then stated that the government attitude must not be given publicity.
