Boycott Weadkening Germany, Writer Says

Download PDF for this date

“Since the Jewish pogroms, the exports from Germany have fallen off ten percent,” declared Harry Carr, editorial writer for The Los Angeles Times, on his return from a ten month around the world trip. He spent some time in Berlin and Vienna.

In an article for The Times, he said: “The extent to which the Jewish boycott has hurt Germany can not be accurately estimated, or its future gauged. There are prospects of a further drop.

“Swedish breweries which formerly bought hops in Germany are now negotiating in Czechoslovakia. American interests are buying surgical instruments in England. French chemicals have suddenly boomed. German ships are crossing the Atlantic almost empty and Jewish firms are forcing the business to American and English ships. In time this pressure will begin to tell disastrously.”
