Chicago Jewish Family Group Sends Protest to Hindenburg

Download PDF for this date

Heated objection against the “propaganda of hate which has been spread by a few of the present masters of Germany” is embodied in a letter of protest forwarded today to President Paul Von Hindenburg by the Eisendrath Cousins’ Club of Chicago, one of the largest Jewish family groups of German descent in America.

Terming the Nazi anti-Jewish campaign as “an insult to Christians and German patriots,” the communication directs attention to the donations of the late Julius Rosen-wald which were used to alleviate conditions of German children suffering from post-War conditions.
