Australian Jewish Groups Call for Boycott of German Goods

Download PDF for this date

Resolutions calling for a boycott of German goods have been approved by major Australian Jewish organizations. The Victorian Board of Jewish Deputies urged the Executive Council of Australian Jewry to request that Jews should not employ or trade with German nationals or import goods from Germany until that country repents its crimes against the Jews. The New South Wales Zionist State Council also adopted a resolution condemning Jews who trade with the Germans.
