U.N. Gets Proof of Rockwell’s Plan for a World Congress

Download PDF for this date

Proof that “the heirs and successors” of Hitler Nazism are attempting to form a worldwide anti-Semitic organization under the temporary leadership of George Lincoln Rockwell, and planning to hold a world congress of Nazi-Fascists in Argentina, was submitted here this weekend to Sir Muhammad Zafrulla Khan, president of the General Assembly.

The proof, in the form of a photo-copy letter from Rockwell, leader of the American Nazi Party, was submitted by Dr. Maurice L. Perlzweig, head of the World Jewish Congress department of international affairs. The WJC has consultative status at the United Nations.

The Rockwell letter, dated last October 3, written on swastika-emblazoned stationery of the American Nazi Party, and concluded with “Heil Hitler,” was addressed to three persons in Buenos Aires, identified as Ferreyra, Dubrow and Muller, of the Argentine National Socialist Front. Rockwell took over world leadership of the Nazi movement this fall, when Colin Jordan, British leader of the movement, was jailed for a nine-month term after being convicted of violating Britain’s Public Order Act through the holding of anti-Semitic demonstrations.
