Japanese Paper Demands Anti-jewish Measures

Download PDF for this date

Official German dispatches today quoted the Japanese newspaper Kokuain Shimbun as advocating anti-Jewish measures in Japan and the expulsion of many Jews for espionage.

It is recalled that in September Japanese patriotic societies formed a Federation to Campaign Against Christian Organizations, which passed a resolution branding Christianity as “a device of Jewish origin which is encroaching on the Japanese spirit and must be eliminated.”
