Download PDF for this date

Samuel Bronfman, vice-president of the World Jewish Congress, warned here last night against the revival of Nazism, and urged action by world Jewry to counter anti-democratic trends evidenced in recent West German elections.

Speaking at a conference of the eastern region of the Canadian Jewish Congress, of which he is chairman of the board of governors, Mr. Bronfman proposed a program to halt further gains by reactionary forces in Germany. The conference, attended by delegates representing all local and national Jewish organizations in Quebec Province, centered on the role of the CJC in Jewish education and community relations.
