Download PDF for this date

A violently anti-Semitic pamphlet, entitled “Jewish Atrocities in the Holy Land,” is being distributed in Washington by the Egyptian Embassy to tourists visiting the Embassy.

An introduction to the pamphlet, which contains fraudulent atrocity photos, states that it intends “to expose the malicious, barbaric and inhuman methods of extermination by the Jews of Palestine in violation of the accepted rules of civilized or chivalrous warfare.” A “bacteriological warfare” charge is made against Israel.
