Swiss Fascists Deny Hatred of Jews in Policy

Download PDF for this date

Fascist groups in various sections of Switzerland today announced that anti-Semitism is not part of their program.

Fascists in the Italian section of Switzerland, with headquarters at Lugano, officially denied they are anti-Semitic, while the Fascist group in the French speaking section of Switzerland vigorously protested in their official organ that to call them anti-Semitic was doing them an injustice. Even leaflets published in Germany repudiate, at least officially, all allegations of anti-Semitism.

Only the openly avowed Swiss Nazi organ, Die Front, continues to spread calumnies against the Swiss Jews, and attempts to incite the Swiss people against the Jews.
