Download PDF for this date

A conference of Franco-Jewish organizations today elected delegates to the forthcoming World Jewish Congress in Geneva and adopted resolutions condemning anti-Jewish actions in Poland, Germany and Palestine.

The conference said programs were occurring in Poland “with the Government’s consent.” On Palestine, the delegates protested current Arab disorders against Jews.

M. Seligman, an attorney, declared that Nazi propaganda was causing a wave of anti-Semitism in Alsace. Seventy delegates attended the conference. Marc Jarblum presided.
