House Opens Hearings on U.S. Warning to Nazi Countries Against Persecution of Jews

The resolution condemning the extermination of the Jews of Europe which was adopted yesterday by the House Foreign Affairs Committee was formally introduced in the House today by Rep. Sol Bloom, chairman of the committee.

Immediately after introduction of the resolution, which also pledges post-war punishment of persons guilty of persecuting oppressed people, Rep. Bloom announced the committee would hold open hearings on it tomorrow morning at 9 o’clock.

The measure asks Secretary of State Cordell Hull to convey “through such means as he may find appropriate, the concern and determination of the House,” and calls upon “the Nazis and all their satellites to stem the tide of inhumanity toward helpless peoples.”
