Anti-semitic Heckling Marks Election Meeting in Paris Sublets

Download PDF for this date

Pierre Mendes-France, former French Premier, was the target of severe anti-Semitic heckling last night at an election of his Radical Socialist Party in the Paris suburb of St. Denis.

The hecklers were several hundred Poujadists, members of the anti-tax movement sparked by Pierre Poujade, who has added anti-Semitism to his political stock in trade. The newspaper Le Monde today hit the anti-Semitic attacks on M. Mendes-France.
