Anti-semitic Book Published in Mexico; Incites Against Jews

A book entitled “America is in Danger” was published here today by a noted Mexican anti-Semitic writer, Salvador Borrego, accusing the Jewish people of imperiling all of America.

Borrego, a staff member of the influential daily newspaper, Excelsior, was the author of a violently anti-Semitic work issued shortly after the conclusion of World War II. In that diatribe, he called Nazi Germany’s collapse a “catastrophe,” and adduced data “proving” that the Jews had started the war and were at fault for the Nazi defeat. That book has gone through several editions and has been circulated widely throughout Latin America.
