Rome Paper Echoes Anti-jewish Demands

Download PDF for this date

Following the lead of Premier Mussolini’s Mila newspaper, II Popole d’Italia, the important Rome newspaper La Tribun today demanded that Italian Jews entirely merge themselves in the Italian nation and maintain only their religious observances.

In an article headed “Either Rome or Zion,” the paper declared:

“It is no secret that European Jewry, including Soviet Russian Jewry, Blum’s France and Zionist Great Britain, entirely opposes the authoritarian regimes in Italy and Germany.”

On Tuesday, the Milan newspaper published an article by Oreste Gregorio demanding Jews abandon Zionism and “international Hebrewism”, stop criticizing Nazism, give whole-hearted support to Fascism, or leave Italy.
