Cuba Bans All Jewish Radio Programs

Download PDF for this date

The authorities today banned all Jewish radio hours on the pretext that the Government did not desire Yiddish spoken over the radio. A demand that the prohibition be cancelled as constituting race discrimination fostered by native and Spanish Fascists was immediately voiced by the Democratic newspaper Hoy.

Meanwhile, President Laredo Bru was urged by the Democratic Party, the Union Revolucianaria, the Communist Party and the Cuban Labor Confederation to release from the immigration camp 57 German Jewish refugees who have been held there two months and are slated for deportation to Germany.
