Ku Klux Klan Circulates Anti-semitic Material in Latin American Lands

United States action to stop Ku Klux Klan circulation of anti-Semitic materials in Latin America was urged here today by Dr. Israel Goldstein, chairman of the Western Hemisphere executive of the World Jewish Congress.

Reporting on his recent visit to Latin America, Dr. Goldstein told a meeting of the executive that he had found “anti-Semitic literature circulated by the Ku Klux Klan and mailed from the United States to a number of countries, including Argentina, Uruguay and Chile.

“This isamatter which should be investigated by the Department of State and the FBI,” Dr. Goldstein said. “Race hatred is an article which must not be tolerated either for domestic consumption or for export to foreign countries.” The material, bearing a Waco, Texas, postmark, is in both English and Spanish.
