Download PDF for this date

The Anti-Democratic Activities Division of the Federal Police Department today closed several Jewish institutions as part of a general crackdown on leftist groups.

All the affected Jewish institutions were not affiliated with the DAIA, the representative body of organized Argentine Jewry. Among the groups closed were the IFT Yiddish Theater, a publishing house, two cultural centers and four schools located in Buenos Aires.
