Writers Association Asks Bonn Government to Act Against Anti-semitic Newspaper

Download PDF for this date

The International Association of Writers in the German Language charged today that the extremist West German newspaper, National und Soldaten-Zeitung, was anti-Semitic and deliberately untruthful. The Association protested to the West German authorities for not taking action against the paper.

Declaring that the publication was inciting people, the letter of protest, sent to Minister of Interior Paul Luecke, added that the newspaper was obviously supporting the Nazi ideology and that this had be made clear repeatedly. The newspaper also had been denounced by liberal and trade union groups in West Germany.
