Spread New Protocols in United States

Download PDF for this date

Emulating the forged document known as the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” another forgery entitled “A Protocol of 1935” made its appearance here yesterday, aiming to stir anti-Semitism in America along the same lines as done in Czarist Russia and in Nazi Germany.

The “Protocol of 1935,” which claims to be based on a “careful study of present-day Jewish activities” is published by the Pan-Aryan Alliance in New York. It is a printed booklet of thirty-two pages and is being distributed freely in the mails. The publisher’s address is not given in the booklet, but the envelope in which the booklet is mailed gives the return address as Box 476, Grand Central Annex, New York.


The booklet is decorated on the front page with a large swastika. A short preface to it admits that the facts contained there are not actual but imaginary. “Mockingly we have been adapting a kind of ‘protocol’ as it could have been written and printed by the Jews themselves if one of them would have the honesty of sketching an outline of the remarkable trend that his race under the pretense of being a religious sect is following up.”

The American “Protocol of 1935” are repeating the old anti-Semitic allegations that the League of Nations has been founded by the Jews and that the World Court is a Jewish institution. Great Britain, France and Italy are pictured in the American “Protocol” as dominated by the Jews.

Discussing the effects of the “Jewish invisible government” in the United States, the anti-Semitic booklet tries to create the impression that the citizens of the United States are “mentally and spiritually” in the hands of the Jews and that “they will do unhesitatingly whatever Jewish crooners tell them to, through press, radio or movie.”

The “Protocol of 1935” claims to be copyrighted and registered with the Copyright Office of the Library of Congress.
