Swedish Youth Protests Against Dissemination of Anti-jewish Leaflets

Download PDF for this date

Swedish Youth, the youth organization of the Swedish People’s Party, protested strongly today against the anti-Semitic contents of leaflets written in Finland and distributed in Swedish by a notorious anti-Semite, C. E. Carlberg.

The youth group declared that the leaflets, written by a Finnish member of the Council of Mines, “should be condemned as a depressing expression of inhumanity and intolerance.” The youth statement added that “we consider it compromising for our country as a state of culture that legislation cannot prevent libel of minority groups.”
