Download PDF for this date

The Berlin radio, broadcasting in English, today denied that the Papal Nuncio, Velerio Valeri, had protested to Marshal Petain against the mistreatment of Jews in French.

“The report of the protest was based on a request the Nuncio has made for certain facilities in a special case,” the Nazi broadcast stated. It added that the recent visit of Gaston Henry-Haye, the French ambassador in Washington, to under-Secretary of State Summer Welles was for the purpose of reiterating the denial.
