Warsaw Police Arrest Anti-nazi Youths

Download PDF for this date

The police have arrested two Jewish youths after dissolving the Anti-Hitler Organization of Jewish Youth, of which they were members.

It was learned that the arrests were prompted by complaints on the part of cinema owners that leaders of a boycott movement against Nazi films were using terroristic tactics.

Similar charges by movie owners in Lwow, it was reported here, were responsible for the arrest of three officers of the Anti-Hitler Committee. They are being held for trial.

Meanwhile, the UFA, German film concern, rented the film hall of the Warsaw Philharmonics for a year, evidently in order to be assured an outlet for its productions.
