Swedish Intellectuals Issue Manifesto Against Anti-semitism

A group of 70 prominent Swedish intellectual personalities, including a large proportion of university professors, writers, artists and musicians established a committee here today to combat anti-Semitism and neo-Nazism in this country.

In a manifesto against neo-Nazism and anti-Semitism in Sweden and anti-Semitic activities in general, the members of the group declared today: “Sweden had always been a free, liberal country with the best traditions of tolerance until Hitler Nazism appeared which has spread the dangerous bacteria of race hatred and anti-Semitism.”
