Download PDF for this date

A number of prominent German Protestant leaders recently participated in a symposium here on the “Jewish problem– an essential problem for the people and the church.”

The symposium was held in connection with a nation-wide conference of Protestant church leaders. Various speakers stressed the need to pay the Jews reparations and for the German people to live in such a manner as to “make good the wrongs of the past.” Several made specific appeals for the elimination of all aspects of anti-Semitism.
