Germans Here Urged to Spurn Nazi Leaders

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

An appeal to Germans in America to declare the Friends of the New Germany and other Nazi organizations in the United States un-German and un-American was issued here today by the League of Free Germans.

The appeal, embodied in a pamphlet, points out that the Nazi movement in America is conducted by Germans who accuse each other of dishonesty. The self-styled German-American patriots have brought shame to the German-American element in the United States, the League charges.

“Though they have attained only 7,000 members, these self-styled ‘leaders’ attempt to create the impression that they represent German-American opinion,” the appeal declares, urging the German citizens of America to raise their voice “against these misleaders and against the doctrines of violence, race hatred, un-Americanism and terror.”
