War Veterans Federation in France Brings Libel Suit Against Anti-semitic Newspaper

Download PDF for this date

The Federation of the Associations of Jewish War Veterans today brought a libel action against “Aspects de la France,” the organ of the anti-Semitic organization Action Francaise.

The suit was brought because of a series of anti-Semitic articles published by Action Francaise declaring that Jews were responsible for the war and for the sufferings it brought for France. The Federation will be represented at the trial by very prominent lawyers.
