Boycott Group Wires Its Protest to Zionists Against German Deal

Download PDF for this date

A protest against the agreement for the export to Palestine by Jewish emigrants of three million marks in German goods, was wired to Prague today to Dr. Leo Motzkin, president of the Eighteenth World Zionist Congress, by the Central Organization for the German Boycott in behalf of all the Jewish economic organizations.

“We do not believe in the possibility of an agreement with Germany as announced by Dr. Ruppin,” the telegram stated. “If, however, it is true, we vigorously protest against the deal with the Hitler Government.”

The protest emphasizes that the deal is particularly to be deplored in that it was announced on the eve of the Geneva conference when an effort is to be made to unite Jewish action against Hitler.

Warning that the agreement would break the boycott was sounded yesterday by Meer Grossman, Democratic Revisionist leader, at the Congress in Prague.
