British Humor Magazine Stops Publication of Jokes About Jews

Download PDF for this date

Taking into consideration the great Jewish tragedy in Nazi Europe, the popular London humorous weekly “Tid-Bits” today announced that it will no longer publish jokes about Jews. The announcement adds that its decision is motivated also by the desire of the publishers not to furnish any material to anti-Semites in view of the growing anti-Jewish propaganda in England conducted by anonymous fascist elements.
