Back Boycott, Revive German Unions, Says Rosenberg on Radio

Download PDF for this date

Pointing out that the destruction of the labor unions in Germany by the Nazi regime was inspired by the great industrialists of that country who feared their power, I, Arthur Rosenberg, attorney, in an address last night over radio station WARD, urged all laborers in the United States to rally to the support of German labor by joining in the anti-Nazi boycott as the most effective means of reviving its former power. The broadcast was under the auspices of the American Jewish Congress.

“The labor unions in other European countries,” Rosenberg said, “notably Czechoslovakia and France have joined in the boycott movement against Germany. It is the duty of every working person and of every broadminded human being to participate in the boycott of German products so that the present regime in Germany may be forced out and labor in Germany may again resume its humane activities and that labor throughout the world may be reassured that its hard-gained victories will not have been in vain.”
