Jews in Cuba Form Body to Combat Increased Anti-semitic Propaganda; Seek Govt. Action

Increased anti-Jewish propaganda–through leaflets and radio–prompted the Jewish community here to establish a special committee to combat the efforts of local anti-Semitic elements and to seek government action against them.

The leaflets, as well as the anti-Jewish radio talks broadcast regularly every day, call for a boycott of Jewish enterprises and for the deportation of Jews from Cuba, During one of the broadcasts the speaker went so far as to call upon the people of Cuba “to complete the job on the Jews which was not completed by Hitler.”
