Mexico Bans Sale of Anti-semitic Books at Airport Bookstores

Download PDF for this date

A number of anti-Semitic books have been removed from the shelves of the bookstore at the airport here.

The step was taken following a ban on the sale of such literature at airport facilities issued by Miguel Aleman, chairman of the Mexican Tourist Commission and former President of Mexico. The ban resulted from complaints by the Central Jewish Committee of Mexico over the sale of hate literature at Mexican airports.
