Midwest Scene of Successful War on Nazism

Download PDF for this date

In the eight months that it has been functioning the Chicago Committee for the Defense of Human Rights Against Nazism has been singularly successful in making the boycott of German-made goods a reality in Chicago and the Middle West.

Through the mediums of hundreds of meetings, of more than 100,000 pieces of literature, and of news items supplied to the daily and weekly press of Chicago and the Middle West, the Chicago Committee has made a profound impression on Christian and Jew alike.

Arrangements have been completed to intensify the work of the Committee as Fall approaches. Dr. John A. Lapp, Catholic educator, is touring New England this month, speaking on the German situation, placing emphasis on the Nazi threat to Christianity and the necessity for a vigorous boycott.
