Toronto Synagogues, Jewish Groups Receive U.S. Hate Literature by Mail

Download PDF for this date

Scores of Toronto synagogues, Jewish organizations and Jewish individuals reported today a renewal of hate literature mailing. They said they had received letters urging them to join the National White Americans Party and party literature demanding “the arrest of all Jews involved in Communist or Zionist plots, public trials and executions.”

The party was listed as having headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. In addition to the invitation to join, the envelopes contained a membership card and a multi-language anti-Jewish leaflet produced by Einar Aberg of Sweden, a known anti-Semite. The letters were mailed locally from a Toronto suburb post office box and ironically contained a post office imprint “Brotherhood Week, Believe It, Live It, Support It.”

In addition to the program for arrest and execution of Jews in “Communist and Zionist plots,” the letter advocated immediate sterilization of “all other Jews.” The box number was known to be used by David A. Stanley, 19, a former high school student who was involved last September in the race riots in Birmingham and who has since been distributing neo-Nazi leaflets in Toronto.
