Otto Kahn Returns, Quiet on German Situation

Download PDF for this date

Otto H. Kahn, noted American banker, returned from a two-months vacation in France aboard the Italian liner Conte Di Savoia, yesterday. When asked to comment on the situation of the Jews in Germany, he shrugged his shoulders and replied, “As a German Jew, what can I say?” Mr. Kahn declared that his trip had been mainly for pleasure. He urged the American people to support President Roosevelt.

“I consider it the business of every right minded man to stand behind those who are trying to pull us out of the mess we are in,” said Mr. Kahn.
