Toni Sender. Former Jewish Member of Reichstag, Dies in New York

Funeral services were held here today for Toni Sender, whose frank anti-Nazi speeches in the Reichstag, of which she was a member, brought down the ire of the Nazis and forced her to flee Germany in 1933, one step ahead of the secret police. She died Friday at the age of 75.

Miss Sender, who came from an Orthodox middle-class family, arrived in the United states in 1935 and led her own campaign against the Nazis, and aided refugees. After working for UNRRA, she joined the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions and represented the non-Communist association of 55,000,000 workers at the United Nations Economic and Social Council.
