Download PDF for this date

The boycott is the only weapon and the most effective one with which to fight Hitler and Nazism, Magistrate Louis D. Brodsky declared in the weekly broadcast of the Anti-Nazi League over station WEVD Friday evening. Magistrate Brodsky recently returned from a tour of Austria and Germany. He was present in Vienna when Chancellor Engelbert Dollfuss was assassinated and saw the Austrian Nazi forces in action.

Magistrate Brodsky denied that the boycott was aimed at German Americans or against the German people. He said that the boycott was only against goods coming from Germany. He urged the widest application of a world wide boycott against Germany as the only means of effectively fighting the Nazi menace.
