“aryan” Union Declares War on ‘white Jews’

Download PDF for this date

The Czech “Aryan” Union declared war today upon “white Jews,” whom it described in a statement as comprising Free Masons, persons who subscribe to Jewish principles, are friendly to Jews, favor Jewish ideals and contribute to “Jewish domination” of the world.

The Union, which is opposed to President Emil Hacha’s Party of National Solidarity and is increasingly active here, would ban Jews and “white Jews” from exercising the franchise, holding public office and owning property. It plans complete separation of Jews from “Aryans” along the lines followed in Nazi Germany.
