Download PDF for this date

Cleveland lawyers recently sent a telegram of protest to Hitler.

The resolution of protest was offered by Judge Virgil J. Terrell, of the Common Pleas Court, and read as follows:

“We, a group of lawyers of Cleveland, Ohio, U. S. A., assembled, protest the brutal persecution of Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Socialists, Communists, and minority groups in Germany today, and we request the immediate release of thousands of political prisoners held in concentration camps without charges.”
