London May Bar German Film; Jews Are Repored Boycotting All Reich Liners

Download PDF for this date

Decision of the exhibitors whether to show “Morgenrot”, the German U-boat film, is wavering. Preparations long ago had been made for the exhibition.

Another reaction against German persecution is registered in the increased patronage English liners are enjoying. It is estimated that before the Nazis came into power, German liners carried fifty per cent of the Jewish travelling public. Much of this trade is now going to British liners, some to French and the rest to Italian. The boycott of German liners by Jews is virtually one hundred percent.

The German film referred to is now on exhibition in New York, at the Little Carnegie Playhouse.
