Download PDF for this date

The release from internment in Rhodesia of Capt. Henry Beamish, veteran anti-Semite who has been active in anti-Jewish movements in Germany, South Africa and other countries for 20 years, has aroused widespread resentment among South African Jews.

The Zionist Record carries an editorial asking “where is justice, when men like Mosley and Beamish are released, while innocent victims of the Nazis remain in camps, and while hundreds of Jews remain in internment in Mauritius?”
