Catholic Youth Group in Austria Urges Boycott of Jews

Download PDF for this date

Demanding a boycott against the Jews, the Association of Catholic German Youth has adopted a radical anti-Semitic program.

In a pamphlet entitled “Fight of Youth for a Healthy Social Reform, the association demands that a fight be conducted against the Jewish spirit, “which threatens to destroy our economic life through the introduction of the spirit of usury, gain and dishonesty and the corruption of the ideas of love, marriage, religion, heroism and fatherland.”

The association calls upon its members not to buy in Jewish shops, not to subscribe to newspapers friendly to Jews and to patronize only Christian physicians and lawyers and to agitate for the boycott of Jewish doctors and lawyers.
