Download PDF for this date

The summer colony at Coney Island, reinforced by large delegations from all parts of New York City, will take part in an anti-Nazi rally tomorrow evening at the Casa D’Amor, West Third street and Mermaid avenue. The meeting was called under the auspices of the Boycott Committee of the American Jewish Congress and the Women’s Association of the same organization.

An intensified program of activities to offset the menace of Hitlerism particularly in the light of recent developments in Austria, will be planned on this occasion. One of the most important problems to be discussed will be the question of American attitude to the proposed extension of additional credits to Nazi Germany by American bankers.

The principal speaker at the meeting will be Congressman Andrew L. Somers of Brooklyn, chairman of the coinage committee of the House of Representatives. Other speakers will be Dr. Samuel Margoshes, vice-president of the American Jewish Congress; Dr. Joseph Tenenbaum, chairman of the Boycott Committee, Mrs. Charles H. Thurow, acting chairman of the Brooklyn Division of the Women’s Association and Louis Segal, executive secretary of the Jewish National Workers Alliance. Hon. Nathan D. Perlman, vice-president of the American Jewish Congress, will preside.
