Leaflets Depict Jews As Child Killers

Leaflets depicting Jews as child killers, received by at least 13 day-care centers in Winnipeg, may be linked to the “Aryan Nation,” a white supremacist, anti-Semitic group active in the U.S. and Canada, according to police investigating the mailings.

They were sent from a fictitious company in Penhold, Alberta, near where an “Aryan Nations” group is located. Sgt. Ted Waller said a special crime unit assigned to the case will extend its investigation into Alberta. The Manitoba Child Care Association has instructed its agencies to turn over such material to the police.

The leaflets accuse Jews of killing Christian babies and try to link the unsolved deaths of hundreds of North American children to a “Jewish conspiracy,” Israel Ludwig, vice president of the Winnipeg Jewish Community Council, said.
