Download PDF for this date

Pro-Jewish demonstrations have taken place recently in the railway stations in Rome, Milan and a number of other Italian cities when trains crowded with Jews sent to labor camps have departed from there, it is revealed in the Regima Fascista, notorious anti-Semitic Italian newspaper reaching here today.

The paper, edited by Roberto Farinacci, ex-secretary of the Fascist party, condemns participation in such demonstrations and warns the organizers that they will be considered “saboteurs of the Fascist regime” and treated accordingly. A decree sending all Jews between the ages of 18 and 55 to labor camps was issued by Mussolini last month.
