Download PDF for this date

Jewish circles in Germany are incensed at the action of the Paramount Company, whose executives are Jews, which has entered an advertising contract with a Nazi film publication, using two pages in each issue.

The Nazi publication is one which calls for the absolute expulsion of Jews from the German film industry.

The Central Union of German Citizens of the Jewish Faith informed the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that none of the German film companies, not even the UFA owned by Dr. Alfred Hugenberg, head of the Nationalist Party, advertises in this sheet.

The advertising placed by the Paramount Company, whose executives are Adolph Zukor, Jesse Lasky, Sam Katz, Emanuel Cohen and I. Blumenthal have enabled the Nazi publication which formerly appeared fortnightly, to make its appearance weekly.
