Download PDF for this date

“Denmark is not a place for hatred of the Jew,” declared Christmas Moeller, leader of the Conservative Party, at an extra session of Parliament. “Anti-Semitism is not tolerated here,” he asserted.

Moeller attacked Sehester, leader of the Peasant Party, who during the recent peasant march before the King blamed ” the might of Jewish capital” for the agricultural depression. Sehester had also spoken of the “unnatural relations between peasants and Jews.”

The conservative leader accused Sehester of deals with Jewish financiers for private gain and asked: ” Is this the right man to speak of hatred of Jews?” Moeller received an ovation from the members at the conclusion of his address.
