“kill Jews” Slogans Appear on Many Walls in Buenos Aires; Jewish Youths Prepare Resistance

Anticipating further anti-Jewish violence here, Jewish youth groups today issued a warning stating that they are prepared to regal attacks by anti-Semitic hooligans on Jews or Jewish institutions. Meanwhile, the city awoke today to find inscriptions on many walls reading: “Be Patrictic, Kill the Jews.”

The Hakoah, Jewish sport organization, addressed a note to the Minister of the Interior asking for government measures to curb the increased anti-Jewish propaganda. The Government is also being flooded with protests from various democratic non-Jewish organizations demanding that the authorities cease tolerating anti-Semitic activities.

The government-operated telegraph office today refused to accept a protest filed by one of the political groups here and addressed to the Minister of Interior. The message drew the attention of the Minister to the role of the police in the anti-Jewish disturbances.

The front page of a new weekly publication, Unided Democratica, which made its appearance today, is entirely devoted to denouncing the anti-Jewish acts in the country.
