Launch Petition Campaign Against “censorship”

A number of delegates adhering to Group B, the right wing faction of the General Zionists, launched a drive to collect signature of delegates from all groups protesting censorship and aiming to end the prevention of delivery of anti-Nazi speeches from the rostrum.

Today an interpellation will be made on the Congress floor as to why important sections of the address of Dr. Nahum Sokolow, president of the World Zionist Organization, at the opening session Tuesday, which referred to Germany were heavily censored and many parts dealing with the Nazis deleted.

Although Dr. Wise was taken off the speakers’ list in general debate, he was named chairman of the committee dealing with Jewish life in Diaspora lands, including Germany. In this position he will be rapporteur for the Congress, but he will be permitted to speak only in the capacity of official rapporteur for the committee.
