Police Confiscate Nazi Boycott Appeals

Download PDF for this date

Under instructions from the attorney-general, the police have confiscated a Nazi anti-Jewish boycott appeal, distributed under the slogan of “not a single penny for the crucifiers of Christ.”

The agitation is in connection with the Christmas shopping season and is designed to divert all such business from the Jewish stores.

It may be recalled that a similar agitation was attempted last year when hundreds of thousands of leaflets were distributed bearing the inscription “No Jewish goods”, printed under the picture of a Christmas tree.

Rabbi Israel Goldstein of Congregation B’nai Jeshurun, and Chairman of the Social Justice Committee of the Rabbinical Assembly of America, delivered an address last Sunday afternoon before the Westchester Peace Societies at the Westchester Community Center.
