Brodetsky Urges United Jewish Front at Peace Conference

Download PDF for this date

An appeal for a united Jewish front at the ultimate peace conference was made yesterday by Prof. Selig Brodetsky, president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, at a luncheon given in his honor by the Federation of Jewish Societies in France.

Although it is impossible at this time to present a definite program for such a front, Prof. Brodetsky said, the following points are fundamental:

(1) The Jews will never agree to be considered second-class citizens in any country;

(2) The Jews will never agree to any “evacuation policies” of governments in countries where they have been residing for generations;

(3) Guarantee of Jewish rights must be an integral part of the general peace agreement for post-war Europe and not an appendix as it was in the Versailles Treaty.
