Thomas Mann Says Present Distrust of American Jews Toward Germany is Justified

Download PDF for this date

“The Jewish people here and elsewhere are only too justified when viewing with deep alarm the present situation in Germany, the resugence of Nazism, the rise of anti-Semitism, and the shocking failure of the denazification proceedings to denocratize the area or properly punish the criminally quilty,” Thomas Mann, internationally known novelist, declared here.

The Nobel Prize winning author made his statement in connection with an Emergency Conference on Renazification in Germany called by the American Jewish Congress ##ere. He was a sponsor of the conference, as was the North California Board of Pabbis.
