Vatican Radio Denounces Persecution of Jews in Broadcast to France

A strong denunciation of anti-Jewish persecution and of the racial laws passed by Nazi and Nazi-dominated nations was voiced last night by the Vatican radio in a broadcast to the people of France.

The broadcast, as heard here, warned that “he who makes a distinction between Jews and other men is unfaithful to God and is in conflict with God’s commands. As long as men make differences in the treatment of members of the human family, the peace of the world, order and justice will be at stake.”

Earlier this week the Vatican radio broadcast the complete text of a statement by the German Catholic bishops of Slovakia protesting against the anti-Jewish measures in their country.
