Download PDF for this date

The stock arguments of anti-Semites are refuted in “Why Be An Anti-Semite?”, by the prominent Brazilian writer, Vanderlei, which has just been published here.

The book is full of evidence by means of which Vanderlei proves that anti-Semitism is the result of ignorance about the Jew, of his literature and of his contributions to the culture of every land in which he makes his home.

“Why Be An Anti-Semite?” has created quite a stir in intellectual circles, where the Jewish question is a live issue. Every book on the subject goes into several editions.
