Leading Italian Papers Defend Regime’s New Race Policy

Download PDF for this date

Important Italian newspapers, including Popolo d’Italia, Corriere della Sera and la Stampa, published articles today defending the racial policy upon which Italy has embarked.

Giovanni Ansaldo, prominent journalist, writes in Gazzetta del Popplo, Turin newspaper, that countries unwilling to succumb to the Anglo-Saxon world system, of which “Jews are the agents,” must defend themselves. He declares that Italy, which since 1935 has watched the alliance of “English and Hebrew imperialisms” has reacted against the Jews in a suitable manner.

A center for study of race problems was reported here to have been organized in Addis Ababa, capital of Abyssinia. Italian university students have been offered a prize for the best work on “Racial Problems of the Empire.”
