Download PDF for this date

French Interior Minister Roger Frey ordered the police today to halt the printing and distribution of a planned 150,000 anti-Semitic and pro-Nazi leaflets by the French branch of the World Union of National Socialists.

The world Nazi group, which met last month in Britain, asked its French branch to produce and distribute the leaflets, bearing the legend “Hitler was right.” The Minister disclosed the order in a personal letter to Salomon Friederich, secretary general of the Alliance France-Israel.
