Reichboycott in U.S. Aids Polish Jews

Download PDF for this date

Polish Jewry has been aided considerably by the results of the anti-Nazi campaign in the United States, it was said here today. Both the work for the German Jewish refugees and the anti-Nazi boycott work in Poland have been made much easier by the leadership of American groups in these causes.

Cabled quotations from the world press on the impending German economic crash as a result of the Jewish boycott, made public here by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, have caused innumerable doubters of the effectiveness of the boycott to join in the ban on German goods. This was especially true after Poland and Germany signed a trade pact.

The Polish press, which has for a long time concealed the intensive campaign against the Nazis under way in the United States, today published two long cables from the Polish Telegraphic Agency on the boycott against Germany. One of the messages said “Hitler anti-Semitism has destroyed the sympathies of the United States for Germany. The American press can’t find one single good word to say for the German regime.”
