Czech Order Stops Nazi Book Displays

Download PDF for this date

Following an energetic protest made by Deputy Dr. Angelo Goldstein, Czechoslovakian authorities ordered Nazi book stores to remove anti-Semitic literature prominently displayed in their windows.

Nazi book sellers arranged large displays of anti-Semitic literature in connection with the trial in Berne, Switzerland, where Swiss Nazis are facing charges for publishing and circulating the notorious “Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” which are alleged to show a Jewish plot to dominate the entire world.
