Anti-semitism in Argentina

Download PDF for this date

The largest circulation Argentine afternoon daily, “La Razon,” has published an ad publicizing a new book called “Argentine Inflation” by Dr. Walter Beveraggi Allende, a professor of economics at Buenos Aires Law School. The ad reproduces the book’s title page showing Argentina crucified on a cross whose nail heads are Magen Davids; at the base of the cross sits a hook-nosed person, with hammer in hand.

This illustration has been called by many as being in the traditional “Der Stuermer” style, Beveraggi Allende is the same man who some three years ago launched the Andinia project slander purporting that Jews were establishing in the south of Argentina, an oil-rich area, a new Jewish state to be seceded from Argentina.
