Download PDF for this date

The Paris police today banned a showing of the Nazi-made film “Jew Seuss,” which was to have been exhibited by a private movie club in the Latin Quarter.

The police acted after protests by the Movement Against Racialism and Anti-Semitism and the International League Against Anti-Semitism, both of which had threatened to hold demonstrations against the film. Invitations to the film were distributed by an employee of the club who walked about wearing an arm band embroidered with a yellow Star of David.
