Jewish history will term the Hitlerite auto-da-fe of Jewish literature a moral pogrom but the Jewish spirit will remain unperturbed, Chief Rabbi M. Schorr declared here last night at a protest meeting in which the leading thinkers and scientists of Poland were represented. The German auto-da-fe was not so much directed against the Jewish spirit as against the world’s culture, Kaden Bandrowski, of the P. E, N., international society of writers, pointed out. Resolutions of protest were adopted and a five-minute period of silence observed.
