U.S. Attorney Demands Human Rights for Jews

Download PDF for this date

“The Jews must have a diplomatic concentrated state wherein they could come to voice their grievance,” declared Nicholas Atlas, assistant United States Attorney, at the monthly forum of Rehoboth Lodge 38, B’nai B’rith, yesterday at the Vasa Castle Hall, Bronx.

“Recent events in Germany have forced the Jews to an understanding they shall not likely be tolerated as nationals, come what may, and that they must stand up as Jews, proud of their race, and demand that human rights be accorded them,” said Atlas. He spoke on the “Reaction in Germany-Race Nationality and the Rights of Man.”
