JEWISH PERSECUTION IN GERMANY WAS CONDEMNED TODAY BY THE STANDARD, LEADING CATHOLIC JOURNAL.

“THE CATHOLIC CHURCH CONDEMNS UNJUST PERSECUTION WHEREVER IT IS FOUND,” THE PAPER SAYS. “THE ATTITUDE OF THE CHURCH TO JEWISH PERSECUTION IN GERMANY IS EVIDENCED BY THE DECREE OF THE HOLY OFFICE ISSUED IN 1928. THE CHURCH ESPECIALLY CONDEMNS THE SPIRIT OF HATRED AGAINST THEM, THE PEOPLE ONCE CHOSEN BY THE ALMIGHTY, WHICH IS CALLED ANTI-SEMITISM.”
