Jewish War Veterans Protest Ludendoref’s Charges


At a conference of Jewish war veterans who have seen active service, from all parts of Germany, a protest was issued against the many vituperative statements that Ludendorff has been making at his trial in Munich about the Jews, particularly with reference to their conduct during the war. The protest reads in part: “General Ludendorff’s statements are unheard of. On behalf of the innumerable Jewish war cripples, on behalf of the twelve thousand Jewish soldiers who led by Ludondorff met their death on the battlefield, and on behalf of their widows, orphans and parents, we refute his charges.”
