Ford Spokesman Denies Issuance of Circular on Jewish Employes

Download PDF for this date

Spokesmen for the Ford Motor Co. today denied knowledge of the distribution of circulars advising that there are 5,000 Jews employed in their plants. Ford spokesmen said three weeks ago that there were 3,500 Jewish employes. A day later the figure was corrected to 2,600. A Jewish employee who has been with the Ford Motor Co. for 27 years, however, estimated the number of Jews employed there to be from 1,100 to 1,200.
