Herriot Condemns Anti-semitism; Appeals for Peace

Download PDF for this date

Condemnation of the anti-Semitic movement and an appeal for work for peace is expressed in a message sent by Premier Edouard Herriot through his representative who attended the banquet meeting of the League to Combat Anti-Semitism here last night.

Among the speakers was Deputy George Pioch. The banquet was the culmination of the League’s Convention. The League decided to adhere to the Amsterdam League for Peace. This is in accordance with a proposal by Bernhard Lecache, president of the League. The resolution was approved despite a vigorous protest from those circles which believe that the Amsterdam organization has some connection with the Soviets.

The conference confirmed its former stand of benevolent neutrality toward the Palestine movement, declaring that a solution of the Jewish question is to be found in the peace of the nations.

All the officers were re-elected.
