Czech Newspapers Anxious over American Boycott

Czech newspaper today voiced anxiety at the refusal of American firms to accept goods ordered in the “protectorate” prior to the German occupation. The newspapers also reported that the United States was insisting that Czech goods be labelled “Made in Germany,” which would necessarily extend the boycott to products made in the “protectorate.”

The newspaper Narodni Politika reported that only 300 guests are now visiting the Slovakian resort of Hohetatra, compared with 5,000 who went there last year. The resort formerly was largely frequented by Czechs and Jews.
