Download PDF for this date

J. Redapple, president of the Australian Jewish Council, warned here today that “increasing economic difficulties throughout the world, including Australia, have accelerated the spread of anti-Semitism which now finds its expression in the desecration of Jewish graves and the dissemination of fresh batches of anti-Semitic literature.”

He charged that “many scurrilous anti-Semitic leaflets published in England, Sydney and Melbourne, are being distributed in factories and in working class suburbs where unemployment already is threatening many homes.”
