Nazis Prohibit News Broadcasts from Berlin on Mistreatment of Jews

Download PDF for this date

The Mutual Broadcasting System, acting upon the suggestion of its Berlin correspondent John Paul Dickson, today discontinued carrying news from Germany because Nazi censorship does not permit broadcasters in Berlin to send to America any reports on the anti-Jewish persecutions there as well as on the crisis in Czechoslovakia.

Mr. Dickson telephoned his office here last night from Berlin voluntarily urging that it cease carrying his news reports from Germany “because censorship has made them useless at the present time.” He especially emphasized the fact that he is not permitted to broadcast from Germany “important news on the Jewish situation.”
