Stevenson Charges Kremlin with Following Hitler’s Anti-semitism

Download PDF for this date

The Soviet Union’s anti-Jewish policy does not arise from feelings of insecurity but from its interest in the oil lands of the Arab states of the Middle East, Adlai E. Stevenson last night told a dinner of the Decalogue Society of Lawyers here.

The nominal head of the Democratic Party said that the Soviet leaders sought to use religious and national hatreds in their campaign to obtain control of oil. “The authors of anti-Semitism and Hitler’s ghost are emerging in the walls of the Kremlin to accomplish what he could not do,” Gov. Stevenson added.
