U.S. Jews Warned Not to Buy Jewish Religious Books Printed in Germany and Austria

The Jewish Typographical Union and a number of Jewish publishers in New York today issued a warning to Jews in the United States not to buy Bibles and Jewish prayer books published by Germans in Germany and Austria for export to the United States.

The statements reveal that plates of Jewish religicus books confiscated by the Nazis from Jewish print shops in Poland are now being used by printers in Germany and Austria to print Jewish prayer books and Bibles which are being exported to the United States for sale among Jews in America. The statements added that at least three Jewish bookdealers in New York are engaged in selling Jewish prayer books printed in Germany and Austria.
