Forged Document Libeling Christians, Laid to Jews, is Banned in South Africa

Download PDF for this date

A document purported to have been discovered in a synagogue here which slanders the Christians and is obviously intended to arouse sentiment against the Jews, has been forbidden from circulation by the Supreme Court of South Africa.

Under suspicion as having forged the paper is J. Von Moltke, leader of the Greyshirt movement, directed against the Jews and fashioned after the German Nazi party.
