Daia Hears Reports of Both Rightist, Leftist Anti-semitism in Argentina

Disturbing new manifestations of anti-Semitism, from extreme leftist as well as extreme right-wing elements, occupied the attention of the DAIA, the central representative body of Argentine Jewry at a meeting of its executive council here. The meeting was attended by representatives of the major cities and the provinces.

Dr. Jose Kestelman, DAIA secretary, said anti-Semitism had been felt increasingly since the beginning of the year and remarked that in the case of Leftist groups, some individuals of Jewish extraction had a part in it.
