Accusations of anti-Semitism are levelled at the heads of the German Red Cross by the “Welt am Montag.”

Yesterday’s paper stated that a prominent Jewish officer, with a distinguished war record, was excluded from memberhrip in the Red Cross, because he is a Jew. The name of the officer is not disclosed.

The president of the Berlin Red Cross, General Bender, and the national president, Joachim von Winterfeld are charged with anti-Semitism.
