Milwaukee Germans Urged to Boycott Nazi Goods

An endorsement given by the Socialist party of Milwaukee to the local Deutsche Zeitung, a German daily, has been withdrawn because of the paper’s pro-Hitler sympathies, it was revealed here.

Organized about a year ago as a liberal newspaper, the Deutsche Zeitung was given Socialist support to help it in its drive for subscribers. The paper was sponsored largely by the various German-American societies of Milwaukee.

At a large anti-Fascist rally here under the auspices of the Socialist party, Heinrich Bartel, former editor of the Milwaukee Vorvaerts, a German Socialist weekly, belabored the Germans here who cling to a blind loyalty to “Das Vaterland” in spite of its present rulers. He called for a boycott by Germans of all German products as long as the Nazis remain in power. He attacked the entire German-American press as being almost completely pro-Nazi.
